    kablok.exe (aka: lisp.exe)

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know why, when I try to convert a VB6 project to VB.NET, that
    Kablok.exe (actually Lisp.exe under the covers) *needs* to access the
    internet for the project to be converted ??? My firewall keeps warning me
    about it, and if I block it, then the wizard fails !! Why does the
    conversion wizard need to access the internet for a non-web based app ?

    My guess is that it is sending Microsoft info about the conversion so they
    can collect the data to improve the wizard.... it would be nice if they were
    more up front about it though.

    Considering the current legal climate surrounding this type of issue, that
    would be exceedingly stupid on their part and could cause severe sanctions
    in some countries. If they are doing it, they will hopefully remove said
    feature prior to their next beta.

    The wizard never accesses the internet, however it does use TCPIP to
    communicate between the "devenv.exe" (Visual Studio.NET) and "kablok.exe"
    components. In fact, you actually have to have TCPIP installed for the
    wizard to work.

    While we felt it was acceptable to ship Beta1 with this limitation, we are
    integrating new components in Beta2 that don't use TCPIP.

    Russ: I'm not familar with the configuration of your firewall, so I don't
    know why it is
    giving warnings. If this is presenting a problem, you could disconnect your
    computer from the network when you do an upgrade; although, if it were me, I
    would simply ignore the warnings.

    If you have any more concerns, let me know.

    Actually I think that was I who referred to the firewall giving a warning.
    Strange thing was, if I disconnected the network, then no problems, but if I
    had the network connected and let the firewall block it, then the wizard
    would fail.

    But anyway, that's neither here nor there if it is already fixed for beta 2.

    Thanks for the info.
