Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.8.0 (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.8.0.dll)

public interface IVsProjectUpgradeViaFactory

This interface is optional but recommended for all new projects. This is the only mechanism that supports copy upgrade. IVsProjectUpgrade will be called whether or not upgrade via factory is implemented or called. This allows IVSProjectUpgradeViaFactory to implement only the copy and project portions of the upgrade, and delegate the rest of the work to be done in-place (at possibly the new location).

Use the SVsUpgradeLogger (SID_SVsUpgradeLogger) service to report informational and error messages.
