Evaluating gmStudio

About gmStudio

You will find gmStudio goes far beyond what people expect from a software "converter". Its flexible and accurate system re-engineering features can help you design and implement a scalable, custom VB6/ASP/COM to .NET upgrade solution. gmStudio enables a unique, agile methodology called the Tool-Assisted Rewrite. As the name implies, this methodology aims to give you the technical benefits of a rewrite, while leveraging tools to precisely preserve functionality and expedite the project. If you are looking towards preserving and enhancing the value of your VB6/ASP/COM assets, gmStudio is the most advanced and cost-effective solution available.

Trial Limits

Lines of Code (LOC)

The Trial License also allows Code Generation Translations for systems no larger than 5,000 LOC VB6 and 2,500 LOC ASP.  

LOC includes all non-blank lines of content in the code files.

The Trial License allows doing Assessment Translations for any size codebase. Assessment translations do not generate .NET code but they provide translation logs and other advanced reports useful for identifying potential issues that might interfere with getting a translation of your system.  These logs and reports are intended to help you identify issues that may require Standard Support; and they may also be used for upgrade project planning. 


The Trial switches to Reporting-only mode after 30 days
