I don't think getting rid of the vc6 ones is a good idea... because some 
people do still use it for various reasons. So having a half working set is 
probably better than starting from scratch.

And VC6 files can be opened by all versions.

The bad thing about them is they are fairly deficient in terms of the 
options available to the newer version of the compiler... so while you can 
open a vc6 project in VS2003, many of the settings will be default because 
they don't exist in VC6...

The most annoying thing in VC6 is you have to hard code all the link 
directories and libraries, in VS2003, you just go, this project is dependant 
on this one and this one, and all the links are automatic.

I don't really know how to do this either.
