Upgrading VS 2005 .NET Framework 1.1 to VS 2012 .Net 4.0

I have a web app built in VS 2005 .NET 1.1 and have to upgrade to VS 2012 .NET 4.0. Is there a wizard I can download or something. I tried to open it and go through the steps to convert but got a bunch of error messages so Im not sure if there is a better way of doing this or not. The code base is VB
Thanks for any help

PS - I have attached a pic of the messages I get when trying to open and convert in VS 2012

Did you try building the site in the new environment. Looks like the error was in copying the site from one location to another. I don't know if that's a show stopper or not.

What happens when you build? Can you run the site anyway?

I don't normally worry about the warnings for these conversions, and the error you got was strictly related to the site being migrated. I'd try to build and run and see what happens first.

I don't know of any better way. You might want to "publish" the site to a new localhost url and see if that works better.

I put the wrong version of the app im trying to update. Its Visual Studio 2003.

I cant even load the project after I try to convert so trying to build the project isn't possible. Nothing has actually loaded?

Normally, you need to run Visual Studio as an administrator to deal with localhost. Try starting Visual Studio as Adminstrator.

And while you are at it, once you will have converted to Visual Studio 2003, do not stick with it. It's already 12 years old and outdated.

There is a free version of Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition for small shops and individual programmers. I would move my code to that after 2003.
