    You mean WPF? Is it possible to convert? Why doing that?

    There is no easy way to transform a VS2005 C++ resource file to a VS2008 C# resource file. It doesn't make sense to even try to automate this, because any information about what is cool in WPF was not saved to the .rc file in C++.

    You have to create a new WPF dialog. From scratch.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
