conversion of a project from vb6 to vb.net

Posted 03 February 2012 - 11:03 AM

hey everyone,
i am developing a library application with vb6 but its now i realize how things may not go my way especially in future maintenance and compatibility of vb6 and modern systems,what is the way through from my development stage?
secondly have designed all the interfaces and now doing the coding part and linking the project to the DBMS(access),hope this can be the starting point.
am glad for all your positive contribution.

I don't really get what you mean but if you're asking whether you could convert a VB6 application to VB.NET as the title shows, I suggest you spend some good time on reading the following articles. Not to discourage you but it seems the whole thing isn't going to be pretty smooth as you can see here.

Other articles that might help you,

When you say "library application" I have the feeling that you are developing utilities and routines using a standard module, rather than creating a form-based application. If so, I would encourage you to convert those routines to ActiveX DLL libraries. This will put your libraries in COM classes that can be accessed with .Net InterOp services. Study that and feel free to ask questions or clarify your intent.
