Convert Dialog Box

The Convert dialog box allows you to select a conversion tool to create a new project from an old one, such as creating a Visual C# project from a Visual J++ or Java-language project, or creating a Visual Basic 2005 project from a Visual Basic 6 project.


The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.

To access the Convert dialog box

  1. Point to Open on the File menu, and click Convert.

    You will see a list of the code-conversion tools that are currently available.

  2. Select the tool that is appropriate for your application.
