We are JUST starting the process of migrating from Net Express 5.1 to VCVS 2.2.2 for 2013. Our native application originated as batch programs on Unisys 2200. It consists of 62 unique Net Express projects, each one representing an original batch job. Each project produces a single .exe that serves as the job controller (more or less replacing the batch job deck) that calls one or more individual batch programs built one-for-one as .dlls (a total of 145 unique .dlls). Some batch programs (.dlls) are in more than one project.
We are assuming, based on the product documentation we've read, that our goal should be one solution (the batch application) with each of the .exes and .dlls as its own separate project?
We are also assuming that since our developer workstations and target servers are all 64-bit this should be the target platform?
Our problem, after trying various combinations of Net Express Import Wizard, Project From Existing Code and Add COBOL Items, is that we can't seem to get create a solution that is consistent both in terms of folder hierarchy for projects (some are in a project sub-folder and others are "loose" in the solution folder) and target platforms (can be set to 64-bit and others can't)?
Anybody with a step-by-step process that might help us out?
