Looking at feasibility of porting our VO applications to X#, need to know what works and what doesn't work in X#. Plan to use MS SQL tables. Please advice, we are on the short end of a decision here. Thanks
Actually, I didn't find something from my old VO code that doesn't work in X#, except perhaps things I did not use like some special low level or undocumented Functions (that I always avoided).

Many years ago, I "ported" my Apps to Vulcan.NET (X# is more 'compatible' than Vulcan.NET with VO) and MS-SQL (since SQL Server 2005/2008).
I didn't even tried to import the VO apps:
1. The UI was designed from scratch using WinForms.
2. The business logic imported as well as many Functions/Methods at the code level.
3. The ADO.NET was my (successful) option but as I wanted to support the same App to use also SqlCe and SQLite, I did not use SqlCommand/SqlConnection and client DLLs like:
System.Data.SqlClient, System.Data.SqlServerCe, System.Data.SQLite
but, DBCommand/DBConnection in an abstract level into my code using a GenericFactoryHelper Class which decides which ones DLLs sould be used at runtime.
If you plan to support only MS-SQL, then your job is simpler.
