I think you can forget about that. ASP and ASP.NET are *so* different, there is no point in upgrading.

Even if there are tools that claim to do it (don't know), I don't believe it. There are so many vital differences between the two, there is no way you can upgrade an ASP page and expect it become an ASP.NET application.

You may end up with ASP style ASP.NET pages with the old spaghetti style coding, which, IMHO, is as good as not upgrading at all.

   there are many tools availlable in internet for converting asp to asp.net..

But None of those softwares are good. belive me...I tried a lot

   Any way converting from asp to asp.net is not so easy you have to change in its entity.

   I tried many softwares to convert from asp to asp.net every one is converting the asp page into aspx page and including "runat=server" in some tags...but his is not perfect..

  I feel it is better to change code in each page.U can forgot about the software that perfectly converts classical asp to asp.net

It is way too much of a nightmare to have something convert for you. I am trying to do that now with someone else's work in asp. I am not too keen on vb and mainly code in C# so I took the start over approach. I cut and pasted any html code into my aps.net ide (VWD) and used code behind to write the C# version of the code as in asp all the code is on the same page. When I was done, it was alot easier to understand that the the asp version and ran better. When I tried to convert code by code it ran like crud, I couldn't easily tell what was happening and I still ended up with questions. One I am going to post here right when I am done with this. :)

Fully agree with IMAR on this, It's always better to start any ASP.NET application from the sketch, by doing so you can control almost any apsect of the application and this will give better results.
