The Great Migrations Upgrade Wizard will help you get started with your upgrade effort and accelerate your progress.   It leads you through a step-by-step process to create a gmStudio project for upgrading a VB6/ASP/COM system to either C# or VB.NET.  The Wizard offers a simplified, streamlined way of using gmStudio. It requires only a few inputs and options, and it produces several valuable outputs.

Wizard-Only License

gmStudio is available with a Lite Edition License that restricts users to running the Wizard to produce default translations.

  • The Lite Edition may be a good fit for organizations that want a quick, standard translation and detailed reports to help them expedite a more manual rewrite.
  • The Lite Edition does not allow customizing translation rules or reporting rules except through the options offered on the Upgrade Wizard Project Settings page.
  • The Lite Edition has a limited user interface: when running with Lite License, the gmStudio user interface is limited to the Upgrade Wizard form.  
  • No labels
