I upgraded EpiServer 7 to EPiServer 7.5, Now i want to Migrate VPP-based files to the new media system.

I seen help here as below

It is talking about Virtual Path Provider Migration Tool. but i did not find this. Is this extra tool i need to install ? or it is part of EpiServer 7.5 instalation ? When i installed EPi 7.5 i did not get this tool.

Can you please let me know how i can find this migration tool or how i can set up if it is part of instalation.

Best regards

Nice. Some of this stuff should really be a part of the product. Like reverting content types.
