unable to convert simple project from vb6 to vb.net

P: n/a
I have recently aquired vb.net standart edition in order to upgrade and
improve a project written by someone else in vb6 for this company I work for.
But every time I try to convert it to vb.net I get this message:

Upgrade failed: Exception occured: The referenced components
CommonDialog
SSTab
are missing design time licences.

How do I fix this problem to continue my work?

P.S.: I am new to programing.

Ken,

There is as well that page where is described what you can do in advance
before you upgrade.

I am almost sure you can find it on MSDE, I could not.

Well in my opinion it would be a verry bad idea to use VB6 controls in
VB.NET
I would strongly recomend you to use the VB.Net equivalants for all of the
used controls

Also it might be a good idea to review all code and write it the .Net way
this will sure give a hughe performance boost

just my 2 cents

Ken,

I found it myself by incident when I was searching for something else in a
message from Herfried.

doh,

You see I was looking for something else and it was an accident that I saw
it. Herfried answering executescalar we see seldom (never).

This sounds like an unusual and unreasonable request of someone who is new
to programming; you are new to both VB6 and VB.Net, and yet you are expected
to translate someone else's work from one language to the other.

I would be very interested to hear about the circumstances of your current
project - are you being pulled from another position to do this? Is it
custom software that is being used to run a portion of your organization?
You don't have to answer these questions... but I'm just curious because I
got my start hitting the ground running in a similar way.

Bob,
Yes, it is custom software developed for a specific part of client
management in my organization, and no, I have a practical engineering degree
in software development but it has been some years since I finished my
schooling and then I learned only vb6 in a very superficial way.
Respectfully yours,
Dan.
