How to migrate a Visual C++ 6.0 custom AppWizard to a Visual C++ .NET custom wizard

This step-by-step article describes how to migrate a Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 custom AppWizard to a Microsoft Visual C++ .NET custom wizard. The custom wizard technology in Visual C++ .NET is significantly different from the custom AppWizard technology in Visual C++ 6.0. You cannot port a custom AppWizard project that was created in Visual C++ 6.0 directly to the new technology. However, you can reuse the existing template files and modify the existing directives to the new syntax.
