VB.Net - Installed VB.Net 2003 Project and PcMover

Good Day Experts!

I am in a bit of a quandry here today.  I used PCmover to copy from a User XP machine to the new Windows7 machine.  The one item we were really counting on coming over "properly" was an installed Vb.Net 2003 program.  Unfortunately, when clicking on the .exe, the windows form does not display.  I get a pop-up indicating the "Importer has stopped working".  It asks if I want to check online for a solution or close the program.  

I don't have much else to go on.  Perhaps I need to register .ocx or .dll files? If so, how do I tell fro original machine which ones?  Is there some kind of log on the computer that may tell me what this Importer messagebox means?

Unfortunately, the individual that has installed this project in the past is no longer with the company.

I know the details are kind of sketchy, but any assistance and/or detective suggestions is appreciated.

Thanks,

Ok, in the event that the PCmover didn't bring everything over properly, I just took the entire program folder located on the current User XP machine that contains all the project files including the exe and put it on the Windows7 machine.  I clicked on the exe and I get that same Importer pop-up messagebox from above.

For the "fun" of it I put the entire program folder from the User machine on another XP machien and clicked on the exe and the form appeared!

So, I wonder if VB.Net 2003 has a compatibility issue with Windows7?

it shouldn't have any compatibility issue. It is just that all the required files (dependencies) need to be found. If you still have the source code, check the references.

Ok, getting a little farther.  I checked the dependencies ad registered 1 and same issue.  I then installed .Net Framework 1.1.  Found a Setup.exe installer so I removed what was copied over by PCmover and ran it.

Now when the exe is clicked on, I get an error message that says "Application has generated an exception that cannot be handled". I click Cancel to debug the application and get a pop-up box that says "Registered JIT debugger is not available. An attempt to launch a JIT debugger with the following coand resulted in an error code of 0x2(2). Please check computer settings". then the next line says cordbg.exe !a 0x424. Click Retry to have the process wait wait while attaching a debugger manually.

I am not sure how to attach a debugger manually.

It seems like I a getting ore to go on.  Any ideas at this stage?

Thanks,

it will be very hard to diagnose. the message is too generic to help you point on the right direction
