Converting a CE project from VS2003 .NET 1.1 to VS2008

50
Hello,

We created an application in Visual Studio 2003 with .NET 1.1.
Now we want to convert this project to .NET 2.0 and want to develop in Visual Studio 2008 (yes I know this has .NET3.5). Maybe we will use 3.5 later, but first we want to see how it goes in 2.0.

I tried opening our solutions in VS2008 but then it doesn't show the forms any more. It only shows controls that are on the form.

Can anyone provide me some feedback what the best approach would be?

Kind regards,
Sven

Hmm... Windows CE is different from Windows Mobile (even though I think WM is based on it) have you set the target to Windows Mobile and not Windows CE?

What? This answer seems unrelated to the question... did the OP go back and edit his post after you answered?

Sven,

If the project migrated to 2008 without errors and the only problem is that your form is goofed up then that has to do with the resource editor more then the actual application. Have you ran your application? Did the forms look goofy there? If so, you may need to rebuild the forms using the editor so that they look the way they are supposed to. It should be fairly simple to accomplish, no?
