As first, we recommend to take a full backup of your project(s) including your existing Eyeshot DLLs.
From version 4 to version 10 many changes were made but with Eyeshot 8 we introduced the Project Converter tool that helps you to migrate from a major release to the next one.
For this reason we suggest to make the migration step-by-step through each version and use the Project Converter where availables.

(note: after each step, check your project to be sure that it compiles successfully)
