Default Convert a VB.Net app to a web app?

I wrote a Windows Forms application in Visual Basic 2005.

What would be involved in converting it to run as an online web application?

Business rules would be much the same, but you would have to rework the interface.

The difficulty & complexity depends completely on what the current app is like (naturally...).

This Visual Basic 2005 app is basically a wizard that starts out with a background image. Then the user selects a number of images to overlay it producing a final image that is saved for later retrieval, and can be printed or emailed.
The 'other' images are .png files with transparent backgrounds.
Can the vb.net code be installed on the web server and executed from a browser as an internet app or does it have to be rewritten and, if so, in what language?

You would need to change the click events on the various images to responses to clicking on image links in a wep page. Then (of course) you could build a temp image on the server, then show that temp image on a web page as feedback to the user of the actions they have taken.

So it sounds like much of your functionality can be preserved, but the interface with the user would need to eb converted.

You are well ahead in the process if your functionality is not all contained in the modules of the form(s).
