How to Convert VB.NET 2008 project to VB.NET 2003
I am using vb.net 2003 for digitizer customization. The project file given by the manufacturer was developed in vb.net 2008. My office system only has .net 2003 version. Is there any way to save or convert the .net 2008 project file from vb.net 2008 so that it can be readable in .net 2003.
Thanks in advance
do you only need to read it? If so, why don't you download the VS2008 Express? It's free.

I do not offer free assistance by e-mail. Thank you!
Unless it is a very simple project, even if you find a way to read it in 2003, you will probably not be able to use it. Visual Studio 2008 and 2003 do not use the same framework, so there are great chances that the 2008 project calls classes, methods, properties, enumerations or constants that did not exist in your version of the framework.
As stated by somebody else, your best bet would be to get the free Visual Studio Express 2008. It lacks a few tools available only in the more advanced versions, but the code editor is complete and I still have to find a project created in the Professional version that does not load in Express.
So if all you have to do is compile and/or make little tweeks in the code, VS Express would do the job for you. And you will end up with a better framework that Microsoft had 5 years to tweek, debug and make more performing, not counting a lot of new classes and a VB which has a few better features (generic collections for instance).
