Frequently Asked Questions

What versions of Visual Studio are supported?

All versions of Visual Studio are supported: 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010.

Is my VB.Net code guaranteed to translate to C# perfectly?

No.  Due to Visual Basic's inherent ambiguities (which VBConversions goes the extra mile to resolve), no automated converter can always translate VB.Net to C# perfectly. However, many programs do convert without errors.  The 101 sample projects from Microsoft convert and compile without errors, as do hundreds of other publicly available sample VB.Net programs. 

What types of VB.Net projects can be converted?

All project types can be converted: Windows Forms, WPF, Console, Windows Service, Web Forms, Web Control, Windows Control, Class Library, and Compact Framework projects.

How Do I Convert Web Projects?

You can convert web sites by making them Web Application Projects. Web Application Projects is an add on to Visual Studio 2005 (but built in to Visual Studio 2008 and above). You can download the Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Project add-in here.

Can I Convert Visual Basic 6 Projects?

Visual Basic 6 projects can be upgraded with the VB6 Upgrade Wizard in Visual Studio and then converted as a VB.Net project.  Make sure the upgraded project compiles successfully in VB.Net before attempting to convert it to C#.
