  • Hello,

    When trying to open the form are you getting an error message?

    Are there third party controls on the VS2008 form?

    Do you still have VS2008 installed?

    You make the same projects in VS2017. You copy the class files from VB 2008 dropping the files into the folder structure you had for VS2008  and do an Add Existing Item to the project.

    Hi,

    install VS2017 and open the project with VS2017.
