Unable to see the Winform -> Telerik Conversion tool from VS 2019 menu

Hi, I would like to use the conversion tool to convert a WinForms project to Telerik controls. Unfortunately the menu item is not showing up for me. See attached screenshot. 

The project to be converted does include a reference to System.Windows.Forms. I am using VS2019 with the latest Telerik Winforms release. 

Thanks,

-Lou

Hello Lou,

This is indeed a valid request. After discussing it with the team we have decided to log a feature request. We will do our best to introduce Code Converter functionality for Visual Studio 2019 in our next major release - R1 2020.

I have logged it in our feedback portal by making this thread public. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link - feedback item.

I have also updated your Telerik points.

Hi Dimitar, thanks for the info. Do you have any estimate for when VS 2019 will support the converter?

Hello Lou,

WinForms Converter is not available for Visual Studio 2019 yet because of breaking changes in Roslyn. 

If you want to use Winforms Converter with Visual Studio 2017 please note that there is a known issue that WinForms Converter crashes with Visual Studio 2017 version 15.8 or newer.  This was caused because a type used in the converter was moved.

So if you decide to use the converter with Visual Studio 2017 version 15.8 or newer you will have to download a custom build of the converter extension: https://www.telerik.com/docs/default-source/ui-for-winforms/telerik-wincontrols-converter-vspackage-vsix.zip?sfvrsn=f91dc85c_2&_ga=2.74353554.1004329630.1571036163-1008809849.1539331534
Please also note that you need to uninstall the converter extension if it is already installed.

I hope you find this information useful.
