We recommend taking a full backup of your project(s) including your existing Eyeshot 2020 DLLs. To migrate your Eyeshot 2020 based application to Eyeshot 2021, follow the steps below:
- Try to compile your existing project
- Run the Project Converter tool
- 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 2020 to Eyeshot 2021, change
<HintPath>C:\Program Files\devDept Software\Eyeshot Ultimate 2020\Bin\devDept.Eyeshot.Control.Win.v2020.dll</HintPath>
