    There is no way to do this directly. You will have to create a vb project, design the forms with the forms designer BUT

    the source files can be converted on web pages such as this: http://authors.aspalliance.com/aldotnet/examples/translate.aspx. There are several of them.


    There are also commercial converters such as this one: http://www.elegancetech.com/CSVB/CSVB.aspx?src=12


    Some of them will convert entire projects.

  • There is no easy way to convert a C or C++ project to VB or C#.  You need to study the project and convert it line by line.  Usually a difficult and time consuming task.  It's usually much easier to call the methods that you want to acess in the C project.

    I have done it for simple projects with those commercial converters I mentioned.

  • Renee:

    How did you convert a C++ project using a C# converter?

    I have to admit, I haven't awakened yet. Isn't vcproj a c# project file?


    I have not done any automated conversions of C++ to VB that's for sure.

  • All of my C# project files have .csproj extensions.

    getting a little off topic ....

    I have used the demo version of the C++ to VB.net converter from this site

    http://www.tangiblesoftwaresolutions.com/  on small chunks of C++ code.


    The demo is limited to 100 lines, so I don't know how well it works on bigger projects.


    If anyone here has used the full version of this I'd like to hear how well it works.

    Tangible is pretty good.

  • Tangible is about the best and David Anton frequently shows up to help.  But converting C++ to VB is not a simple task.
