Default Converting V.B.6 to V.B.2005 - Help !

Hello All, I looked up in my 'help' menu, how to convert V.B.6 applications to V.B. 2005 automatically. Despite using the example provided in my 'Express Edition', i.e. Drawing.vbp & using the conversion wizard, it was unable to compile/assemble, and even threw up a number of errors, suggesting it didn't recognise certain methods & properties, e.g. PictureBox.Cls ( I thought this would be the very thing the conversion would be able to 'translate' into V.B.2005) This, it would appear, caused it not to produce the relevant .exe file. I did follow the instructions to the letter. if anyone has any suggestions without further details, I'd be most grateful. (I can of course, cite error messages etc. verbatim if necessary, there's a copy of this message on the Beginning V.B.2005 forum). Thanks Liam..... --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wouldn't put much effort in attempting to do a conversion automatically. If the app is simple, just "port" it by rewriting the code. If the app is large and very complex, I would consider slicing off parts of the functionality into managable chunks.
