Easily Converting to Visual Studio 2008

Easily Converting to Visual Studio 2008

VS2008 has launched and on the pace. You might get into 100 different project files and solutions. The thought of manually opening each one and going through the upgrade wizard didn't sound that appealing. Fortunately, there's an easier way to automatically upgrade a solution or project: the /upgrade switch on DEVENV.EXE (the Visual Studio IDE itself). Using the /upgrade switch is about a million times faster than the wizard!


· Begin by opening a Visual Studio Command 2008 Prompt from the Start menu.

· Navigate to your project tree and execute "devenv /upgrade MySoln.sln" (without the quotes).

· Visual Studio will automatically upgrade the solution and all projects as well as create backups.
