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.

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