      This tool shows up as a new project template in the SharePoint 2010 folder in Visual Studio 2010. When you create a new project based on this project template you are asked to select a Visual Studio 2008 extensions for SharePoint project file. This can be a .CSPROJ or a .VBPROJ depending on the language you used. The upgrade tool will then create a new Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint project that contains all the elements of the old VSeWSS project. Since the new Visual Studio 2010 project templates are quite different to the old VSeWSS ones you should test your project carefully after upgrading it. This tool is provided as a sample by Microsoft and is not supported by Microsoft Support.
