Converting from VB6 to VB.NET 2003

Hi,

I have a very big VB6 program to convert to VB.NET 2003. When I use the
..NET converter, it convert up to a point where the converter just hang
and never finish the job. The converter is not freezing, it is at
approx. 80% that the converter just hang (with almost 0% CPU from task
manager).

Is there a VB6 code validator to run on my program to be sure that it is
convertable?

Regards,
Marty

There are a couple of tools...

Code Advisor for Visual Basic 6.0
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

I think this one's geared toward VS2005 but it's very cool... even if you're
not migrating to .Net

Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic .NET Upgrade Assessment Tool
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Don't count on too much, as far as automatic conversion goes. VB6 and dotNet
are just too different.
