Well, "converting" is a broad term. If this application uses
Borland-specific technologies, then converting implies rewriting
of relevant parts of the program.

However, usually you just create new solution in VS, then add
existing files and settings and fix build error until it builds
cleanly. BTW, VS6 is really old. I suggest you to port your
application to newer version of VS. Latest version of Express
Edition of VS is free.

What is missing in Express edition?
Is it something that actually does something useful?
