convert app to vb.net

I have an outlook application that I'm thinking about converting to VB.NET.
Would it be easier to convert the code over or just re-write the application?
thanks

Hi
if you have your program with vb script over outlook , then you have to
rewrite a new one if you want to covert it to a .net application

Mike,
What is the "outlook application" written in?

Do you mean VBScript behind Custom Forms?
Do you mean VBA modules?
Do you mean a VB6 COM add-in?
Do you mean something else?
For a discussion on selecting development technologies for Exchange Server,
start here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...hsel_intro.asp

To avoid the Outlook security prompts its generally easiest to create a
properly constructed COM-Addin for Outlook 2003. There are other methods
available for other versions of Outlook...

See:

Mike,
Is this related to the public folder question or is this question a distinct
one (a separate problem)?

As Mohamoss suggested you will need to rewrite it. The links I provided
should help.

Post if you need further help.

Hope this helps
Jay

the code behind question, which is vbscript and it uses public folders.
I'll look at the links to see if they help
