I tried to open a new page, drag the DesktopPortalBanner user control into it, and got the same error message.
I also tried to create a stub class for DesktopPortalBanner, not working either...
I am now really lost, but I would really like to migrate and then continue from there. Maybe someone can help out here?
Many thanks in advance

If you're still struggling with this and aren't too far down the road you might want to see if the Web Application Projects for VS 2005 will give you a better conversion. It's listed as beta 2 preview as of now but may be worth trying.
Scott Guthrie has some advice, tutorials, etc.
I've thought about converting IBS myself but currently am too busy. If you try this, how about a post back with your experiences? Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for your information. I really appreciate.
across this article, http://ryanfarley.com/blog/archive/2005/12/05/13455.aspx,
saw that Scott has helped out there with the migration, so I wrote to him directly.
Scott, being wonderful and unbelievably responsive, replied immediately and pointed me to http://webproject.scottgu.com/. I tried it out
and it worked perfectly. And here is some extra information from him:
"Yep – it is definitely fine to keep using the web application project model approach. This new option will
be a fully supported model with future releases (note: we are looking to add it into VS 2005 SP1).
Our release at the end of this month will probably be a feature complete release candidate. You will need to uninstall and then re-install the
WAP install when it comes out – but you won’t need to change any code to upgrade to it. There are still some missing features in the current
preview (including event generation, and the copy project functionality you noted below). These will be implemented with the new refresh later this month." (Scott)
Mike, thanks again!!
