Welcome to MSDN forums!
VBScript project is not compatible with VB.NET. You cannot open it in VB.NET IDE, nor upgrade it in VB.NET IDE.
You’ll need to rewrite the VBScript program in VB.NET or try to convert to VB.NET code.

By the way, we can upgrade a VB6 project to VB.NET project via VB.NET IDE built-in Upgrade Wizard.
The Production Evolution from VB6 to VB.NET:
VB5.0 -> VB6.0 -> VB .Net 2002 (VB 7.0) -> VB .Net 2003 (VB 7.1) -> VB .Net 2005 (VB 8.0) -> VB .Net 2008 (VB 9.0)
The Project Upgrade from VB6 to VB.NET:
The Upgrade tool that is included with Visual Basic .NET.
This happens automatically when you open a Visual Basic 6.0 project in Visual Basic .NET: the Upgrade Wizard steps you through the upgrade process and creates a new Visual Basic .NET project (your existing project is left unchanged). This is a one-way process; the new Visual Basic .NET project cannot be opened in Visual Basic 6.0.
When your project is upgraded, the language is modified for any syntax changes and your Visual Basic 6.0 Forms are converted to Windows Forms. In most cases, you will have to make some necessary manual adjustments until the code is compliable after it is upgraded. This is required because certain objects and language features either have no equivalent in Visual Basic .NET, or have an equivalent too dissimilar for an automatic upgrade. After the upgrade, you may also want to change your application to take advantage of some of the new features in Visual Basic .NET.
