Hal Spacejock Five

Paperback and ebook

Future upgrades to my software

All my programs were originally written in Visual Studio 6, a development environment which has served me well but which is now getting long in the tooth. Therefore, I've been converting them to Visual Studio 2008, which is the latest incarnation. So far these conversions have taken me two years of non-stop effort.

Not all will be converted - and that's what this page is about.

App Intention Progress Comments
BookDB3 Convert to VS2008 Beta version nearly ready Databases all converted to XML, unlimited authors per book, unlimited categories, enter books with title only (no author, publisher, category required), all forms resizeable.
FCharts2 [ConvertTo Beta version available now View screenshots of the work in progress here. You can also download an alpha-test version to try.
HamTime2 Convert to VS2008 Conversion Complete Released
Installer Will not be updated N/A The Microsoft .net runtimes includes all necessary files, so this program is no longer relevant.

Sonar3 Convert to VS2008 Conversion Complete Changes detailed on the Sonar 3 page. Released.
Track-a-Minute Convert to VS2008 Conversion Complete Released

yLend2 Convert to VS2008 99% done Up and running. Debugging the beta.
yMail2 Convert to VS2008 Conversion Complete I've finished converting this one, and I've been using it as my primary email client for some months now. If you want to play with the beta release you'll find it here
yPlay2 Convert to VS2008 Conversion Complete Released
yRead3 Convert to VS2008 Conversion Complete Released. (Requires the .NET 3.0 runtimes because of the speech synthesis.)
yRoute Leave in VS6 N/A Flight Sim X (FSX) is out now, and I'm not updating to support it. (Although since FSX looks like it might be the last version, I may still rewrite yRoute if enough people ask.)
yTimer2 Convert to VS2008 Not started VS2008 + control collections = a nightmare.
yWriter5 Convert to VS2008 Conversion Complete Released


Please note - to run apps written in VS2008 users will need to download the appropriate Common Language Runtime (CLR) from Microsoft. It's a free download.

Linux users can install and run the same programs using Wine.
