VB Migration Partner correctly convert most binary properties stored in .frx binary files, including images.

Here is the list of all properties that can’t be migrated and are discarded during the migration of a form:

If any form in your VB6 application contains the design-time definition of any of the above properties, you should add one or more statements to assign the property via code. You can typically achive this by adding InsertStatement pragmas in the Form_Load event handler.
