Let me make sure I understand the transform you want to do. So you have a VS6 project (vdp) + source code files (frm, frx, etc) and you want to create a built application EXE? If so, the way to do this is File -> "Make EXE".
If your goal is to convert this code into VB.NET code using VS 2005, you can use File -> Open Project and choose the VDP file. This will automatically convert the code to VB.NET using an upgrade wizard. You can learn more about VB upgrade guidance on http://msdn.com/vbrun/
I hope one of these answers is what you need. Let me know.

2. question:Is possible to get this software for free and which link?

1) Make EXE feature is only available in Visual Basic 6. You cannot buy this at the stores but you can get it via an MSDN subscription.
2) You can buy an MSDN subscription for a fee. See http://msdn.com and click on How to Buy.
If you choose to look at VS 2005, there are free options. You can get our entry level product, Visual Basic Express, for free here: http://msdn.com/express/ You could also get a trial version of the Visual Basic Standard or Pro editions. The differences between the editions is discussed here: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/b4z62wxz(VS.80).aspx
3) VDP format is Visual Basic 6.0 or Visual Studio 6.0. VS 2005 uses a new format called PROJ (for project). If you open a VDP in any edition of VS 2005 or VB 2005, an upgrade wizard will launch and assist you with the conversion. Note that most conversions still require manual work. Upgrade guidance is discussed in detail on this site: http://msdn.com/vbrun/
I hope this helps.
