Default Coverting asp code to asp.net 2.0

This may not be the appropriate forum for this subject, I am a network manager working in a school. A collegue from another school uses an asp (original) app that allows his staff/pupils to connect via web to their home dirs. The app was orinally written by Simon Norris. Its called 'Fileace' and have seen it in operation, works very well. In your opinion would I be better off leaving the original using asp or should I try to convert the app for asp.net?

Simon does say non-profit org. may modify his app.

Any opinions/help would be appreciated.

Regards

Steve.

hi there...

this is a decision that's depends only on what will you do with the app. If it works ok and you will not modify it, then stay with what you have.. If you need minor surgery on it, stay with that. If you want to take major surgery on it, then maybe your best choice it to migrate it to a new language, but again it's depends on what you are trying to achieve and your time/money to make the changes...
I don't think that any of us can point you in the right directions, is not just a choice of change it or not....

Don't forget to consider your own coding preferences. If you don't need to touch it. But if you do, you're going to be much more comfortable working in what YOU are good at. If you only need minor surgery, but are MUCH more comfortable in ASP.NET 2.0, don't be shy about taking that into account too.:D

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
