Book excerpt: Upgrading to Visual Studio 2005

This chapter from "Professional Visual Studio 2005" walks developers through the ups and downs of upgrading a Visual Basic 6 application.

Visual Studio 2005 is the ideal IDE for developing robust .NET 2.0 applications -- and, with the release of Windows Vista, for .NET 3.0 apps as well. Professional Visual Studio 2005 from Wrox Press explains what the IDE brings to the table throughout the software development lifecycle -- design, documentation, coding, debugging, testing and deploying. The authors also devote a few chapters to general tips and timesavers.

Chapter 45, Upgrading to Visual Studio 2005, caters to developers with Visual Basic 6 applications that they want to upgrade. After pointing out "things that just won't work," the authors walk the reader through the Upgrade Wizard and the Task List and Error Reports that the wizard generates. There is also a section on the Upgrade Visual Basic 6 Code tool, which is ideal for small chunks of code.
