ANN: VB6 To WPF Project Migration Aid Tool.
EDIT 2: The project has been moved to CodePlex. NOTE: The old site will still be online, it just won't be updated anymore. Besides, the new site has only the most recent (R3) release.
EDIT: Release 3 has been published. Go grab it now!
Just wanted to tell you about a tool I've been working on about 3 weeks ago, and released today:
VB6 To WPF Project Migration Aid Tool
This tool will read classes, modules, forms, user controls, and even ActiveX documents created in Visual Basic 6, and map them to recognizable XAML & code-behind files for Windows Presentation Foundation, for Visual Studio 2008 (or later).
Of course, it's by no means a complete migration solution; the files generated need to be modified in order to do something useful with them. Yet, the labor of converting forms & controls to XAML done by this tool, it is quite good, if I may say so .
You can download the tool here: VB62WPF - Release 3
Source code is available as well, here: VB62WPF - Release 3 - Source
The project is available under MIT licensing, so feel free to do (almost) anything you want with it.
And, of course, any comments & suggestions are welcome!
