Automatic Web Forms to ASP.NET Core Conversion–is that practical?

By Avonelle Lovhaug on 2/26/2021

Part of me wants to believe that this product can really deliver a solution to migrate my Web Forms applications to ASP.NET Core. Certainly those of us with legacy Web Forms applications would like to see a successful tool that moves these applications forward without a complete rewrite.

On the other hand, since Microsoft isn’t supporting VB.NET on ASP.NET Core, in my case any migration tool would also switch it to C#, which isn’t my preferred way forward. Also, they seem to price based on the size of the project, and don’t provide clear pricing information on their site for any of their migration tools, suggesting to me that it might be cost prohibitive in many cases.
