If you use Visual Basic Upgrade Wizard on your Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 project with a user-defined data type, the wizard generates a warning message for the code with user-defined data type assignments. For example, you may receive the following warning message for a direct user-defined data type assignment.
UPGRADE_WARNING: Could not resolve default property of object <<UDT>>. Click for more information: 'ms-help://MS.VSCC/commoner/redir/redirect.htm?keyword="vbup1037'
The wizard incorrectly treats the user-defined data type variables as a class object, and then tries to locate the default property for the object. The user-defined data type does not have default properties. Therefore, the wizard cannot locate a default property, and it reports an incorrect warning.
You can directly assign one user-defined data type to another, or you can make a member wise copy between the user-defined data type variables. You receive the warning messages only if you create a direct user-defined data type assignment between the variables.
You can safely ignore these warning messages in Visual Basic .NET or Visual Basic 2005 code. However, instead of using a direct assignment, you can perform a member wise deep copy between user-defined data type variables to suppress the warning messages.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
