[Tutorial] Migration to Framework .NET 4.0 & Visual Studio 2010
Part2: Conversion Wizard Visual Studio 2010

The last article showed basics on how to migrate to Framework .NET 4.0. This article shows the Conversion Wizard of Visual Studio 2010.

Conversion Wizard Visual Studio 2010

Visual Studio 2010 provides a Conversion Wizard that helps converting old projects and solutions to the new Visual Studio 2010 format (similar to the conversion wizard within Visual Studio 2008 ).

The converted projects and solutions replace the existing ones so take care to do some backups before the migration.

If projects cannot be converted, they are marked as unavailable in the Solution Explorer until the problems are resolved and they are correctly converted.

To migrate multiple projects or solutions it is possible to create batch files and execute the migrations in batch mode.
