  • Don't know about 'the best' approach - we migrated from VS2005 to VS2010 and most of the pain revolved around Frame windows, docking panes, menu bars and the like.  The rest seemed to go fairly smoothly.  Sure you don't want to go straight to 2011?  ;)

  • Hi hunter144,

    Thanks for replying to my question. Can you describe what's the benefit to go straight to VS 2011 instead of 2010?

    Thanks!

    For the same reason you would rather migrate to 2010 instead of 2008, or 2005, or 2003....

    Bear in mind that currently VC++ 2011 won't build applications that
    will run on Windows XP.
