Microsoft Offers Free VB6 to VB.NET or C# Conversion Tool

Microsoft has released 'ArtinSoft’s Visual Basic Upgrade Companion (VBUC)' as a free downloadable tool to convert old VB6 code into .NET code (either VB.NET or C#). It appears to be good for converting up to 10,000 lines of code under the free license. See the link below for more details:

  1. A good tool, awesome.., but unfortunately, MSDN license is not useful limited to 10,000 lines of code. Maybe Microsoft must to consider purchase the product and offers to customer free or a modicum price.

  2. How to convert vb 0.6 code to of this code
    Printer.Print Text1.Text

  3. Useless tool when limited to 10K lines of code. Unless a more reasonable amount of code is enabled for trial use its simply a tease and a complete waste of your time.
