How to convert 11,000 lines in a few minutes!

clock February 14, 2011 11:11

Transoft is a large, UK-based system integrator with branches in the US. Last year Transoft became Code Architects' partner for migration services. Last week I asked Transoft's Fiona Oliver why they opted for using VB Migration Partner rather than other migration tools. Here's her answer:

I used VB Migration Partner to convert a small program (11K executable lines) that enables connections to multiple ODBC data sources in separate windows, allows entry and execution of SQL statements, and displays the results. It also allows for metadata export and import to local files. It compiled with no errors and ran with a single pragma to insert a single line of code. In comparison the Visual Studio Upgrade Wizard produced code with over 102 compilation errors. I was very impressed!

This comment makes it evident the huge gap between VB Migration Partner and other "traditional" converters such as Upgrade Wizard and other VB6 converters that are based on the same translation engine.

If you are curious of how VB Migration Partner can help you in your migration efforts, you just need to download our VB6 Bulk Analyzer, run it against your VB6 project, and send us the report.

Welcome Infortech, our Japanese partner!

clock January 22, 2009 03:02

I am very excited to announce that we just closed an agreement with Infortech, a large and important Japanese vendor, with subsidiaries in China and Malaysia too.

Infortech is translating VB Migration Partner's documentation and will provide presale and tech support to our Japanese and Far East customers.

Added On Jan 23rd: the interest for VB6 migration in Japan must be really high, considering that several technical sites (this, this, this and this) have rethrown the news soon after the announcement. Wow!
