Conversion failed Dialog Box

The project system was not able to open a project from a previous version of Visual C++. Possible reasons include:

  • A valid project file was not specified.

  • The project did not contain a Win32 platform configuration. In order for a Visual C++ project from a previous version of Visual C++ to be opened, there needs to be at least one configuration with a Win32 platform target.
