I have around 10 large websites created with VWD Express 2008.
1) Should I upgrade them to VWD Express 2010 or 2012?
2) Technically how would I do that?
3) If so, how long could it be expected to take?

Thanks very much.
I didn't think any of my sites had a project or a solution file. Or am I mistaken and are they hidden somewhere?
Also since many of the sites are already deployed on Godaddy Hosting (as opposed to just being local on my C drive), what chnages would I then need to make on the remote sites?

Do not trust project upgrades, migrate instead!
I've never worked with vwd express, can you install 2010/2012 side by side with the old version? If yes install it, create a new website targeting 3.5 (if framework targeting is supported(?)), and migrate the old website to the new one (copy files, copy
user defined parts of the web.config etc.)
