GeneralUpgrading an old VC application PinmemberDan Neely9-Jun-14 9:08 
This is very preliminary information gathering at present; but I've found out I may be tasked with upgrading an elderly windows app, currently running on NT4 and untouched in a decade, to work with modern versions of Windows. So far the discussion's only been at the upper management level; but from the dates involved (and knowing that IIRC our .net app from 05 was the customers first) we're assuming it was written in Visual C++/MFC; a platform I dabbled with in school but never used for anything real.
 
Since MS no longer offers anything prior to VS2002 via MSDN I'm wondering how much pain I'm likely to be in for in just getting it to compile under newer tools.
 
PS I'm really hoping it's not so old as to be a win16 app. I've never written win16 code; but from what I've read on The Old New Thing, it's enough of a Codethulu-elephant that by the end of porting something from then I'd probably be able to drink Nagy under the table. OMG | :OMG:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
