In this interview, Todd Apley, Senior Test Lead on the VB Team, shows us a variety of tips and tricks with using the Interop Forms Toolkit on Visual Studio 2008. He also shows us how to deploy a hybrid application built with VB 6 and VB.NET using XCopy deployment and RegFree-COM.
The Interop Forms Toolkit, available from the Visual Basic Developer Center, enables you to take a phased migration approach to upgrading your VB 6 applications. Instead of having to do a complete rewrite, you can instead create .NET user controls and forms that can be run from within your current VB 6 applications.

Todd will also be posting follow-up information on the VB Team blog.

    Here's the link to the blog posting that Beth referred to.   Unless you're my mother (in which case, Mom, yeah I know I should've shaved before coming to work...), you'll want to check this out for information relating to the video.

    Feel free to ask questions here or (in the future) post question in the interop forums...
