Migrating a VS2003 project to VS2005

I need to migrate a web project from VS2003 to VS2005.

I am a novice user. List down the steps that need to take care before migrating.

Is there a tool (don't want that tool in VS2005 setup) that will migrate my solution to 2005 hassle free?

Great link... Thanks a ton! My problem is to convert all the *.vb code files to Partial classes. It throws error on the page directive. I have around 100 pages(.aspx) and it is very difficult to change manually.

Please suggest me the best solution to sort it out.

When you convert it automatically create as partial class for all pages, no need to do manually...................

In 2005 everything take as partial class.............

only thing is you have to change some html tags only........................

Upgrade/migration issues from VS2003+.NET 1.1 to VS2005+.NET 2.0
Hi,  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...

Migrating VS2003 to VS2005.
Hello, I have recently migrated VS2003 web application(ASP.NET 1.0) to VS2005 (ASP.NET2.0). But after migration I am getting an error saying a particular DLL is not defined. How do I register this DLL in the server so that I can overcome this problem. Note: I have migrated the application which is in different machine(i.e., Shared drive).   Thanks, Renil. You don't have to register the dll on the server.  Just put it in your App_Code folder  and then add a reference to it in Solution Explorer.http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/1886a4bb-c9d8-4ba6-8078-04b...

Is it possible to migrate VS2005 Web Application Project to VS2005 Web Site.
Good afternoon.On my first project using VS2005, it was a brand new project so we didn't have to face the migration issue.  As we were developing right after VS2005 was released, we created the code using File | New | Web Site.I have now moved onto my second project and this one is a migration from a previously existing .NET 1.1 codebase to .NET 2.0.   We are currently investigating the best approach for migrating this code from VS2003 to VS2005.  We are thinking that at least initially, we might convert the code into a VS2005 Web Application Project using the steps located at...

Visual Studio 2005 Crashes after migrating from VS2003 to VS2005
I have migrated my project from vs2003 to vs2005 after installing application project. Everything is very smooth. And my project in vs 2005 can be compiled and run. However, when I use master page and try to drag a third party control component into the design region (in the content page), vs 2005 crashes. Well, this is not the headache yet. So I removed master page. And start running the project in debug mode, I keep getting the error message as listed next. Visual studio is frozen to death. No matter if I restart the visual studio or restart the computer, I keep getting the following infor...

How to compile a .Net/vs2003 project outside visual studio or in VS2005
I have a strange urgent issue. Our web server/web apps runs .Net 1.1 and cannot upgrade this to 2.0 or higher right away. The Project I developed is in VS2003.

Hi there,I have migrated a web project from vs 2003 to vs 2005 using web application projects... It works but page_load always fires twice.
