I have a VS2003 solution that consists of a Web Project in VB, 2 Class Libraries in C#, and 1 Class Library in VB.
When I turn the Conversion Wizard loose on the solution, it only attempts to convert the Web Project.
Looking at the "Common Web Project Conversion Issues and Solutions" page, Issue 27: Partially converted solutions, it says that if I'm using an express product, such as VWD, only the Web Project will be converted. However, Help | About VS in the IDE says
I'm using the Professional Edition.

I figured out what is causing the problem.
If I open VS2005, click on Open Web Site, and select Local IIS, it goes to C:\Inetput\wwwroot\MyWebApp and finds MyWebApp.vbproj, NOT the solution file. The solution file lives in C:\Projects\MySolution. Also in that directory are the .vbproj and .csproj
files for the 4 class libraries.
Once I figured out this is what was happening, I double-clicked on MyComputer and navigated to C:\Projects\MySolution\MyWebApp.sln. I right-clicked on the .sln file, clicked on Open With, navigated to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE,
and selected devenv.exe.
VS2005 opened the solution and ran the converter on all the projects.
Now I just have to correct my conversion problems.
Thanks for your help,

Sorry to hear that you have problems with solution conversion.
I have few questions,
After the solution is opened in VS2005, what projects do you see in the solution explorer window? Just the website alone? How do these 4 class library projects displayed in the solution explorer?
BTW, What make you think teh class library project were not converted?
