How to migrate a website from ASP to ASP.NET?

Microsoft's ASP to ASP.NET Migration Assistant

 

Do you still have classic ASP applications or websites that you need to migrate to ASP.NET? If so have we got news for you... introducing the ASP to ASP.NET Migration Assistant from Microsoft. Here's what Microsoft has to say about it:
The ASP to ASP.NET Migration Assistant is designed to help you convert ASP pages and applications to ASP.NET. It does not make the conversion process completely automatic, but it will speed up your project by automating some of the steps required for migration.
It's still in the very early stages (aka. alpha release) but it's still worth giving it a look. It's got a pretty standard setup routine:
Setup - Welcome

 



Setup - System Requirements

Setup - Installing

It can be run either from within Visual Studio.NET or from the command line.
Visual Studio.NET - Menu

Visual Studio.NET - Converter
I tried it on a few files and it worked pretty well. Like they say it doesn't make the process completely automatic, but it might help.
