Eradicate VB6 Code with New Mobilize.Net VB Upgrade Companion 6.5. New version paves your escape from VB6 by increasing automation to highest levels ever.

Posted by DeeDee Walsh on Wed, Oct, 21, 2015 @ 06:10 AM

BELLEVUE, WA – Oct 20, 2015 – Mobilize.Net announced Visual Basic Upgrade Companion (VBUC) version 6.5, available today, that substantially reduces post-migration work on migrated .NET code. VBUC is the leading migration tool for converting VB6 apps to .NET and beyond. With this new version of VBUC, developers now have the fastest, most efficient and cost-effective migration tool on the market. Of the millions of lines of code that Mobilize has tested, VBUC version 6.5 has increased automation to 99.9%. No migration tool offers higher migration automation to native .NET code without runtimes, than VBUC.

With hundreds of thousands of developers using the tool and millions of projects migrated with billions of lines of code converted, VBUC is by far and away the most popular migration tool ever shipped. This new version has been tested on millions of lines of real VB6 customer code, with 99.9 percent of the lines of code compiling in Visual Studio without modification.

In addition to increasing automation and significantly improving productivity, VBUC version 6.5 also includes:

  • Performance improvements: the time it takes to do a migration on a large application has been improved by a factor of 2X and in a lot of cases 5X.
  • Large applications with complex references can now be resolved in the solution setup phase with much better results.
  • Better code readability in solutions with shared files.
  • Significant improvements in data access, both in terms of code quality and higher automation of mappings.
  • Improvements in code quality for projects migrating to VB.NET. For example, VBUC 6.5 includes myriad improvements for processing type libraries, accessing and removing collections, converting menu items in control arrays, and more.
  • Certified to fully support both Visual Studio 2015 and Windows 10.

VBUC Paves the Way to Mobile and Cloud

VBUC provides the best onramp to WebMAP, enabling customers to move from VB6 all the way to web, mobile and cloud.
