Framework Migration from 1.1 -> 4.6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am stuck with an issue while migrating Framework from 1.1 to 4.6. Below is the scenario.

    It is a Window based Project in VB.NET. Currently the project is built with VS2003 with Framework 1.1 in Win-7 and now I am migrating the project to Framework 4.6 using VS2015 Professional in Win-10.

    I opened my project in VS2015, did the backup and code migration through wizard. After that changed the targeted framework to 4.6 and built the solution. 

    Now I am facing issue with the form designer, i can not open any of the form in design view. When i try to open the form in design view it is showing "Object reference not set to an instance of the object".

    All suggestions and solution are appreciate. Please let me know if you need any more information from my side.

    Below are the Stack error message.
