How to Convert VB6 to VB.NET


Some versions of the VB.NET Visual Studio application include an upgrade wizard, so you can automatically convert Visual Basic 6 code to VB.NET. The conversion tool updates functions, syntax and references to any DLL files. Most programmers review the code and make a few changes, but the conversion wizard marks each section change with comments, so you can review the conversion code before applying it.

  • Launch Microsoft .NET and then select Visual Studio to open the software.

  • Select Convert from the Open dropdown menu, and then double-click the VB6 project file in the dialog window to start the wizard.

  • Click Visual Basic .NET Upgrade Wizard in the list of options. Click Next in the first welcome window.

  • Select EXE from the file type window. If the VB6 project is a DLL, choose DLL instead and click Next to start the upgrade.

  • Click OK in the confirmation window. You can review the code changes in the files after the conversion wizard runs. Click Run to execute the new code in the VB.NET debugger.
