We've recently sold & installed MS VisualStudio Pro 2010 on behalf of a client of ours, and the install went without a hitch. Now he wants to test if VisualBasic 6/8 frame files can be edited in VSP2010, namely a .FRX file. The frame file concerned appears to have been created in VB8/VB2005.

I've read that VB8 at least is .NET based, and that there are conversion tools for it. However, VB6 seems to be interpreted rather than compiled, and converting would be rather cumbersome. Additionally, .FRX files on the surface of it look to be in binary format, rather than ASCII. Any thoughts?

You can import the VB6 project by opening it from File > Open Project/Solution and it will convert it to the latest version. It should automatically convert all the project components including form files and their binary counterparts. However, it can only open them as part of a project. You can't just File > Open File to view/modify them.
