How to convert a web part project created in VS 2008 to VS 2010?

share|improve this question
Did you create the project in VS2008 using a Blank C# Project, C# Class Project or using the VSeWSS project solutions? – James Love Sep 23 '10 at 9:57
Or did you use WSPBuilder or STSDev? – Alex Angas Sep 24 '10 at 6:06

If I was starting from scratch, I would use the Visual Studio 2010 tools. But if you have an existing project using, say VseWSS, STSDev or WSPBuilder, I suggest you continue to use this. It should still work with Visual Studio 2010 after upgrading and possibly tweaking. I would not bother trying to restructure the solution to use the new deployment tooling in VS2010 unless there is some particular capability that is missing from your existing solution.
