But more than 50% of the responders are using VC++ 6, which can easily be upgraded to VC++ .NET 2002 or 2003

The problem is VC.NET is not fully backward compatible with VC6 and it will break your code in many cases mostly because VC6 let / forced you do things that were not standard (mostly with templates) and VC.NET fixes this but if you have code written for VC6 it may require a lot of modifications to compile under .NET. I have 200K+ lines of code in 6 dlls that I use with most of my applications. Most of this code was written by me (probably like 70%) and some of it was taken from code project and other sites. I spent two weeks and fixed 200+ error messages in this code and then gave up and returned to the old code and old compiler. Good thing with CVS you can go backwards without too much pain.. It was too much a pain to fix other peoples' code because I was not familiar with it enough to make the changes and they did not have updates yet.
