Migration issues from VS.Net 2003 to VS.Net 2005
I have a ASP.Net 1.x web application developed using VS 2003. The language used for this application is VB.Net. When I tried to migrate to VS 2005 I am getting the list of errors and warnings as shown below. I have been trying the migration in a new machine which does not have VS 2003.

1) Yes you can. You can use SQL2000 from .NET 2.0 as you did from .NET 1.x. SQL2005 just has some additional features to offer.
2) It can be if...Migration issues in UI portion of .Net 1.1 from VS 2003 to VS 2005
We are trying to migrate VS2003 app (client and web app) into VS 2005. We were successful compiling the application. But when we try to run the app from Web it gives us the following error:
Unable to locate the file containing one of the providers referenced in web.config. Please check your file and correct the errorCould not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\DDDD\UI\bin\some..dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
Everything seems to be going well but I am not sure what I need to do.Thanks
Hi John -

Visual Studio is great when everything works well and you don't know what is happening under the hood. However when things don't work it is really frustrating since you just don't know what is going on.
I have a project (a web site) that was originally developed for VS2003 and ASP.NET 1.1. When I loaded this project on VS2005 (and ASP.NET 2.0), VS told me that it will migrate it to the new environment: it did a number of things, generated a migration report and created/moved files under App_code and such directories. I tried this process a number of times b...VS.Net 2003 Conversion to VS.Net 2005 issues
I've recently installed and started using VS.Net 2005 and have converted a web service solution to .Net 2.0 which works fine. I have an ASP.Net application [still .Net 1.1] that consumed this web service and now I cannot get it to work. Previously this was referencing the binary created for the web service but obviously this binary is no longer created. I have changed this reference to a web reference and now use the WSDL files i've generated from the web service but I get the following error.// Error DetailsException Details: System.Net.WebException: The request failed with the error m...VS.NET 2005 vs VS.NET 2003
I have used VS.NET 2003 extensively and exploited all features like drag and drop functions for creating components, drag and drop data access components...For example VS.NET 2003 allows creating sqldataadapter for table mapping , stored proc parameters mappings etc..We can drag pretty much any object on component designer....Not it seems like all that gone...VS.NET 2005, there is no way we can drag the typed dataset, sqldata adapter, sqlcommand on forms designer . There is no concept of component. There is no component designer any more....Biggest flaw i found is sqldatasource and...VS.NET 2005 vs VS.NET 2003 #2

it's the gridview,and where is the data adapter.
How will i connect the tables now?
Here are a couple videos on the new Data model in VS2005. I think you will find it much easier to use. I have watch the first one, but the second is by Fritz Onion. I think there is an Advanced Data Binding Video in the same series done by him as well.

I am starter in .Net trying to migrate a VS 2003 web application project to VS 2005. The necessary steps provided for migration are followed. After conversion the following are the observations. Please clarify on these.
a) Viewing the converted solution in the solution explorer windown showed that the folder containing the .csproj file was not included. Then this was added manually. Is this a right way to do it.
b) Among of the .xsd files present in the project, only one of the .xsd files generated two files designer.cs and a normal .cs file with duplicate class an...VS.NET 2003 to VS.Net 2005
I just converetd my VS.Net 2003 project to VS.NET 2005 using the convert wizard in Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Project. It compiled with no build errors and a few warnings. When Iam trying to view the project, then it gives me 404 error. Can someone help ? Thanks
Could you confirm you are using WAP (Web Application Projects) versus the built-in WSP (Web Site model)? If you have a project file after converting, then you are using WAP.
Could you post the actual 404 error you got?
Also, did you set your start page in the converted project?

Do you have any hints?

I've seen some postings indicating that you can have VS.NET 2003 and VS.NET 2005 side by side on the same machine. I've also seen some comments that if doing this there is something that gets messed up, but I can't locate what it is and what the solution might be.
Can someone shed some light on this for me regarding what might get messed up and where I can find the fixes to it?

We are getting ready to start migrating all our applications from Visual Studio 2003 to Visual Studio 2008. Is anyone aware of any direct conversion issues? Also. a lot of our 1.1 apps use datatables as the datasource can we still do this in 2008?
Yes you can.I have done some migration between 1.1 and 2.0 and there were some small issues but in general most of the things worked fine.For example Microsoft has changed the html validator in Visual Studio.also some events works a little different. If you share session cookie between some 1.1 and 2.0 (or) later apps you have to do so...VS.NET 2008 next to VS.NET 2005
