    In This Topic

    The Project Converter tool is used to automatically update Visual Studio projects to the most recent version of Eyeshot components. Using the Project Converter is recommended each time you install a new major version of Eyeshot components, and when you have projects that use an older version of devDept Software products.

     Overview

    The Project Converter can be invoked in the following ways:

    1. from the Start menu of your Windows OS (All Programs | Eyeshot Ultimate 12 | Project Converter);
    2. from the hard drive in the directory in which you installed Eyeshot ("C:\Program Files\Eyeshot Ultimate 12\Tools\EyeshotTools.exe" by default).

    To upgrade some Visual Studio projects based on previous version of Eyeshot you need to:

    1. Select the path of the projects
    2. Set the previous and current serial number
    3. Click Upgrade

    The Project Converter replaces references to outdated Eyeshot assemblies in your projects with references to the most recent libraries. The following files are updated during the conversion process.

    • Project files (.csproj and .vbproj)
    • .cs, .vb, .xaml and other files that can be upgraded

    The Project Converter does not automatically substitute assemblies that are located in the /Bin folder of your project. To upgrade your /Bin folder, choose BUILD | Clean Solution in the main menu of Visual Studio, and then rebuild the project.

    IMPORTANT: Before upgrading your project, it is strongly recommended that you review the Upgrade Notes document. If you have any problems after the conversion, please visit the Breaking Changes section on the devDept website for more information on upgrading.
