Migrating legacy C++ code

Hi, I'm looking at migrating our existing from Visual Studio (6.00) C++ code
to the .NET version of C++ (unmanaged) Can anyone point me towards
documention or an overview of this ?

Thanks in advance,

My last 4 blog entries have been on the issues I faced when I compiled some
VC 6 code with VC 2005. It's far from comprehensive and probably covers less
than a quarter of the issues you may run into - but you may find something
useful there : http://blog.voidnish.com/

Project conversion is done automagically by a wizard. Now, you could run in
some (rare) incompatibilites due to conformance enhancements in Visual 2003.
See http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...US,VS.80).aspx.

The next point is to take advantage of the new compiler capabilities to
write (or refactor) better code ;-)

Thanks guys. Unfortunately, I think the old programmers were firm believers
in using as many "rare incompatibilites" as possible ;-)
