VS 2005 project migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have inherited a vb.Net project done in VS 2002. I have got VS 2005 installed on my PC.

    When I try to open the project, a project migration wizard pops up. Does anybody know that there are issues involved with this?

  • Hi Kamal,

    The migration wizard you are seeing when you open a VB 2002 or VB 2003 project will simply convert the project file to the new 2005 format.  It will also scan through the .vb files to see if the project contains any variables that are now considered to be keywords and if found will wrap these variables in square brakets (i.e. [keyword]).

    Other then that your project should be as you had it in VB 2002.
