    Missing .dll Upon Conversion

    Look in the VBUC references screen to see if that DLL was referenced by your original VB6 project. The VBUC would not create this--it's some kind of private library, not a Microsoft .NET library.

    Missing .dll Upon Conversion

    Visual Studio is telling you that you have a dependency on a DLL (AMB_Test5Support.dll) that it can't find in the location listed in your project file. Check your development environment and point VS to the correct path for that DLL and you should be ok.

    No project converts

    Glad we could help!

    No project converts

    Based on your log file, it looks like you might have a corrupted installation of VBUC. It happens--I had the same problem not that long ago. Good news is you can follow the steps here to fix it: https://www.mobilize.net/vbtonet/error-retrieving-the-com-class-factory-for-component-with-clsid-7b11c67c12-105a-4f42-a5c8-cb9070f2855a7d-failed-due-to-the-following-error-80040154

    Analyzing your VB6 code

    Even if you don't have a license for the VBUC you can still use it to analyze your VB6 application. This analysis will provide you with some information about your project(s) like number of lines of code (LOC), design lines, components, and more. Launch the VBUC and point to a folder containing a *.vbp file (valid VB6 project). Then go to the Tools menu and click Assessment: Click run, and the assessment will process all the files it finds. If you get an "unresolved references" warning, you can click the "Resolve References" button on the left and resolve those references (right click the missing reference and browse to its external location). Results will appear in a browser:

    COM or no COM

    As Olman said above, not all properties, methods, or events from ActiveX components are guaranteed to be supported by newer, equivalent classes in .NET

    License FAQ

    How do you get a license for the VBUC trial? This question comes up frequently. When you sign up for a trial, our bot will automatically send you a "welcome" email with a .lic file attached. You can save that file somewhere and browse to it from the licensing screen inside the VBUC. The license will let you TEST the VBUC on a VB6 project up to 10,000 lines of code. But sometimes the email gets blocked, or sent to a spam folder, because it has an attachment. You don't actually need the email at all. You can download the license directly from inside the VBUC licensing screen. This article explains how. Your only requirement is to use the same email address you used to sign up for the trial. That's how we index the database--if you use a different email address we won't be able to generate a license. If you need larger trial license, contact us. We can arrange for that in most cases but we need to understand the reason first.

    Unable to install

    It looks like the problem might be related to the existing installation of VS2010. The installer looks for a file called VSIXInstaller.exe which is also on your VS2010 instance; but the SL Bridge doesn't support 2010 so there's a built in conflict. Suggestion is to rename C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\VSIXInstaller.exe to vsixinstaller.bak, then re-run the SL Bridge setup program. After it's completed, you can rename the VS2010 file back to .exe. Note: we're not sure this will work, but it's easier than uninstalling VS2010.

    Unable to install

    Sorry for the delay, this is a bit puzzling. We think it might be related to the version(s) of Visual Studio installed on the dev machine. Can you check and tell us please which versions of Visual Studio are installed?

    Help me find this OCX,DLL,EXE? *stuck at reference list*

    Hi @wangw, you inspired me to write a blog post about this problem and how to fix it. You can read it here: https://www.mobilize.net/blog/vb6-to-.net-missing-a-reference

    Unable to install

    Hi Zimo85, Can you provide a little more information? Did you have the Silverlight Bridge previously installed? If so, did you uninstall it before running this setup using the Control Panel or did you uninstall it from inside Visual Studio?

    Error Occurred During Conversion To UWP

    This has cropped up before: it's a VS problem. See and also here: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/2891723/microsoft-appxpackage-targets-causes-build-failures for a workaround.

    Can't see "Convert to UWP" option

    Hello Jack, Are you sure this is a conforming and complete Windows Phone Silverlight project (version 8.0 or 8.1)? If so, and you don't see the migration option, try uninstalling the extension and reinstalling it as an admin.

    Support for Windows 10?

    Yes, VBUC fully supports Windows 10 and all prior versions back to XP.

    How to finish a WebMAP migration

    Let's start a thread here documenting the things that will have to be done after migrating a C# app to HTML with WebMAP. I'd like to see both issues identified as well as solutions and even code if possible. I'll start: Printing: Suppose your Windows app performs a printing task, perhaps an invoice to be mailed or a shipping label.You might have used Microsoft Word as a formatting tool before you sent your file to the printer as well. In your browser, you won't have access either to a printer or to Word for formatting. Solution: Create a PDF. Here's a web service from Adobe that will create a PDF from XML data. Then you can pass a link to the PDF to the browser for downloading to the local machine for offline printing. If you don't want to use LiveCycle from Adobe, here's an article describing taking an HTML view and creating a PDF from it.
