Regardless of the tool you use, there will likely be some serious work to do
yourself. The conversion utility in Visual Studio will produce output that
will point you to the areas requiring your attention. Whether other
recommended tools will do an automatic conversion or not, I'm not sure.
You'll have to look at the cost of such tools and judge for yourself whether
it's worth it.

Well it was not a multipost, I really want to go to C#, but heard that it
was not possible, but I needed to confirm, hence my post in c#section.
This post was an attempt to convert vb6 to vb9 then later on to C#

I would concur with this. I converted my business rules-engine from VB6 to
VB.Net a couple of years ago and I can vouch for the fact that it takes a
LOT of work to get the .Net version of it working properly. You pretty much
need to inspect the entire code base to make sure the changes mapped
properly. Even sections that APPEARED right used language constructs that
were slightly different and required a re-think.
