I have a web app that I built using VS.net 2003 and ASP.net 1.1 I would like to start developing my app with ASP.net 2.0. What do I need to do to convert it and will VS.net 2003 support ASP.net 2.0 and .Net 2.0?
Thank you for any information on this,
I think that you want have many problems converting from 1.1 to 2.0. Take a look here:http://www.msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/whidbey/beta2update.aspx
I think that besides changing the aspx directive, everythin should work ok (tough i still haven't migrated any web site to version 2 of the platform).
Regarding VS 2003, I think that it will only compile against 1.1 though I really hope I'm wrong :)
ASP.Net 2.0 is 100% (or at least 99.9x%( backward compatible with ASP.Net 1.x. So you don't need to convert your app to 2.0, what you can do is to change the app to use the new features shipped with ASP.Net 2.0. If you open your old project with VS 2005, a wizard will guide you to convert the project, so it can be open with VS 2005.
VS.Net 2003 will not support ASP.Net 2.0

Is it possible to get a copy of VS 2005 now (beta)?
