Converting a dotnet application to VC6

P: n/a
My first question here involves understanding what files are used
where in regards to a dotnet application.

For instance, I see a bunch of .config files. One I opened up looks
like it represents a set of menu items. In fact, it's an XML file with
quite a few <MenuItem name="name" value="value" /tags.

Is this file comparable to an older resource (.rc) that contains menu
items?

For instance, the following line appears in the .config file...

<MenuItem name="-" value=""/>

Is that comparable to the following item in an .rc file?

MENUITEM SEPARATOR

And does anyone here know if there's a reference anywhere to
convert such files from dotnet to older technologies?

Thanks for any help.

Perhaps you could start by telling us which version of Visual Studio (2002,
2003 or 2005) was used, and which C++ project template was used, Windows
Forms (CLI), MFC, etc.? That would give us some idea of the magnitude of the
problem you face.
Once you have the details in hand, you might also consider posting your
question in the appropriate C++ group(s). Some possibilities:

microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vc
microsoft.public.vc.mfc
microsoft.public.vc.language
