There were many questions around the web, how can we directly upgrade the ASP.NET MVC 1.0 application to ASP.NET MVC 2.0.

I have found on Phil Haack’s post that VS 2010 RTM will include an automatic upgrader for MVC 1.0 applications.

He notified about a 3rd party tool  on the Eilon Lipto’s blog . He provided us with a tool for converting ASP.NET MVC 1.0 application project to ASP.NET MVC 2.0 beta. Since beta and RC there is n’t much difference i think, so this tool will work for ASP.NET MVC 2.0 – RC2 also.

or you could atleast convert to a sourcode similar, minor setbacks can be modified easily. Since we have the project converted in to mvc 2.0 like such.

you can read back from Eilon Lipton’s blog
