I was wondering if there is a code conversion utility
that will take version 4 code and change it to the
new C# style version 5 code

Please ask Fidelity.

In reading the FAQ, it does appear that one is being built. What's the status of this effort? Is there an ETA?

The free conversion tool sponsored by Fidelity would be a separate tool developed by a third party. (source)

Fidelity doesn't publish release dates. (source)

I was told November 2008 by WealthLab support at Fidelity.

Is the coding used on wld 4 the same as in 5, and if no to you that is good in this coding do you think it simpler the version 4 ?.

I'd like not to go all over it again since it was already widely discussed. In brief, there's no groundbreaking change when you move to C# to code a Strategy in WL5. When you know enough WealthScript, it's mainly a question of getting used to the new .NET syntax. The coding is simpler than before because .NET provides you with a tremendous class library that contains many methods helpful in different situations.
