ProjectFileConverter.ConvertInMemory Method (Engine, ProjectLoadSettings)

Note: This API is now obsolete.

This is the entry point method, which performs the project file format conversion. This method will simply create a new MSBuild Project object in memory, instead of trying to write it to disk.

MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework.You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0.
