gmStudio uses information about COM components so it can recognize and interpret them correctly during the translation process. For efficiency, gmStudio stores this information in XML files. These files are called Interface Description Files (IDFs) and they must be created before translating any codes that depend on the components they describe.The [Tools/Author Interface Descriptions] option will create IDFs for your migration project.Creating interface description files is one of the default processing steps for all new migrations.
If you selected Externals=Interop when you setup your migration project, the system will create Interop assemblies for the external COM components referenced by your codes.The [Tools/Author Interop Assemblies] option will create Interop assemblies for your migration project.Creating interop assemblies is one of the default processing steps for "Interop" migrations.

.NET Windows Forms applications use Resx files to store metadata for each form. Resx files contain information used by the forms designer as well as graphics (i.e., bitmaps, icons) and other binary content such as control property settings and binary information needed for Interoped controls (i.e., OCXState).You will need Resx files in order to maintain your user interface components with the .NET designer and to display .NET user interfaces at runtime.The [Tools/Author Resx Files] option will create Resx files for your migration project.Create Resx files is not a default processing steps for new migrations.
