Visual Studio Project Conversion - Converting VS 2005 projects to VS 2008 (Commandline mode)

Visual Studio Project Conversion

Converting every single project between VS 2005 and VS 2008 must be a boring one, just think if projects count around 40-50 in a solution.
Now, an easier way to upgrade a solution or project Visual Studio IDE.


1.Go to Start Menu(In Windows)
2.Select Run
3.Type devenv /upgrade yoursolution.sln
4.Press ENTER

Now Visual Studio will upgrade the projects & solution also with backups. This method (Commandline mode) is faster than regular Visual Studio project conversion wizard.


devenv /upgrade E:\Projects\Project.sln
