Migrating from version 12

We recommend taking a full backup of your project(s) including your existing Eyeshot 12 DLLs. To migrate your Eyeshot 12 based application to Eyeshot 2020, follow the steps below:

  1. Try to compile your existing project
  2. Run the Project Converter tool
  3. In case of failure:
    a) search for the "TODO devDept" text in your entire Visual Studio solution
    b) check the ProjectConverter log file for errors
    c) check the Breaking Changes list



If you get the following error loading the project:

Please edit the project file, fill the <HintPath> with the absolute path of the Eyeshot DLLs and try again.

For example, migrating from Eyeshot 12 to Eyeshot 2020, change

<Reference Include="devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v12">


<Reference Include="devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v12">
<HintPath>C:\Program Files\devDept Software\Eyeshot Ultimate 12\Bin\devDept.Eyeshot.Control.v12.dll</HintPath>

  • Hi, I am trying to Migrate Eyeshot 11 to Eyeshot2020.

    But convert tool says that "Error: Eyeshot 12 is not detected. This project refers to Eyeshot 11."

    Please tell me how to fix it.

    Regards Misha.
