Migrating to 2010

I'm almost embarassed to ask this:

I've been programming in VB.Net since last fall, using Autocad 2009 and MS
Visual Studio 2008 Express, translating about 8 years accumulation of VBA
code. It's going fine, easy to use, more powerful, everthing works, etc.,
etc.

One thing has me flummoxed though: Autocad 2010 showed up today and I'm
trying to move my code over to it, and I just don't know how and can't seem
to find any information on the migration.

I copied my project and reset the references to the 2010 versions, but when
I start debugging, Acad 2009 starts and of course doesn't like the 2010
versions of acdbmgd.dll and acmgd.dll. I've searched everywhere I can think
of, but can't figure out or find out how to redirect the project to 2010.

I'm assuming this is reallly easy, since I can't find any record of anyone
else's asking this question.

Anyway, can somebody help me out?

Thanks in advance . . .

Try this search in the VBA forum:

"Tutorial for VBA developers to use Visual basic and C# 2008 Express Edition"

In your project's properties, you have to tell Visual Studio what executable
to start. So, you looks like you've not changed that to AutoCAD 2010.

Thanks to both of the people who replied so swiftly and helpfully. With
their guidance and a little extra work on my own, I got going in 2010.

For anyone else having this issue: As Tony Tanzillo pointed out, I knew I
had to point the project to a different executable, but I didn't know how to
do this because VB Express doesn't provide direct access to that setting.

The tutorial to which DSnodgrass directed me showed how to change the
executable path by modifying an xml file called appname.vbproj. I made the
changes but my project still kept opening in 2009 until I figured out that I
needed to make similar changes in another file called appname.vbproj.user.

Now my project opens for debugging in 2010. Even better, my code seems to be
working so far.

Thanks again for the help. Is this a great newsgroup or what?
