Default Migrating from VB4 to .Net

Hi,

I am about to migrate a couple of projects from VB 4.0 to the .Net plateform. What is the best way to do this? Is it Vb4 --> Vb5 --> VB6 --.Net Converter tool--> .Net or use the converter tool from VB4 to .Net?
Any help or pointers will be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Kika

hi there..

your best choice.. refactor everything...

VB4 is a lot lot diferent from .net, even from vb5.. so you will have a lot of problems trying to migrate it..

there is not a good tool (IMHO) that can migrate you from vb4 to vb5 .. just image the that you are using a whole diferent tech just to connect to a database..

maybe you have to rethink what you need??
