Honestly, your best bet to to just scrap the VB6 code and rewrite.

Sure, there are some tools to upgrade the code for you, but it's code written in VB.NET to mimic what VB6 did for backwards compatibility. It is NOT code that should be used to teach yourself VB.NET.

The last version of Visual Studio to have the VB6 upgrade Wizard was 2008. After that, you're either using some third party tool or you're rewriting by hand. Rewriting is really the best option.

Agree, a 5. The legacy project could be used as a reference source at best. It should be considered as not a problem, but as an opportunity: the opportunity to finally create a cleaner project.

The way to resolve your issue is to follow the advice in Solution 3 - do not "migrate" the code, especially using wizards. Rewrite in .net using the original as a reference.
It will be quicker, more robust and more maintainable.
