Hopefully you did a good job of separating the presentation layer from the business/data layer so you would only have to redo the presentation layer for the windows application. There is no "auto converter" that will convert one to another.

Basically the website is a record keeping website of a factory.. strongly attached with database.. I have used SQL there..So it would also be working there..???? Or guide me that if this software is for a factory. then which UI is suitable for it...Or windows form will be ok.. ????

spelling mistake

Well windows form works best where you short time for filling up the forms like counter sale. So my advice would be to go for win forms but you can still have a part of it made in ASP.NET to show the reporting on web crystal report makes that part
