While I was in Las Vegas attending DevConnections I sat in on a session for the Conversion Tool that Microsoft created to upgrade ASP.NET projects. 

Michael Bundschuh (Program Manager for Microsoft) did an excellent job discussing the protential problems the tool finds and the fixes it applies to the project.  Needless to say he was extremely informative and did an excellent job of showing off the conversion utility.

While surfing my second favorite site (MSDN), I found that he has published an article covering the same stuff as in the session.  You can find the article here.

I hope that you find it helpful.

Comments on this post: ASP.NET 1.1 to 2.0 Conversion

I am converting an application from 1.1 to 2.0. Everything works ok except one issue. We use a cascading style sheet for styles and the Textboxes on my aspx page use a class on the style sheet. When the form loads my textboxes display colors. But as soon as I submit the form then the colors are not loaded anymore. But the data that I submitted has been inserted/updated. Any ideas? I am using some ascx - controls on some of my forms. Why is the color information that is set gone only in 2.0 version and not in 1.1?

Pls. let me know if there are any areas that I can look into?
