• After more than 30 years running websites and forums I am retiring.

    I have made many friends through the years. I will cherish my time getting to know you. I wish you all the best. This was not an easy decision to make. The cost to keep the communities running has gotten to the point where it's just too expensive. Security certificates, hosting cost, software renewals and everything else has increased threefold. While costs are up ad revenue is down. It's no longer viable to keep things running.

    All sites will be turned off on Thursday 30 November 2023. If you are interested in acquiring any of the websites I own you can Email Schwarz Network.

VB to C++ converter

How feasible is it to convert VB.net code to C++? This company here claims to have a product to do it, but discussions online seem to say that it can't be done. Just wondering if Tangible Software Solution's solution is likely to work.

Kind of thinking that if ever I want to try and get a job in computing I ought to know C++ rather than VB.net so it would be a good idea to switch over, including a couple of current projects that I have.

As with many code conversions, it can probably be done, but I wouldn't be pretty or practical. Conversion between such different languages is best done by hand.

Think of Google Translate. You can translate a book from Chinese to English with it, but the results are going to be less than desirable. I will not really be recognizable as the original work, and most likely won't be useable as good reading material.
