I converted my solution from VS 2010 to 11 and two projects out of 14 didn't convert.
In the Solution Explorer I see:
"This project needs conversion" message for the sql server database project and
"The application is not installed" for the setup project.
The windows service that the Setup project installs is already installed but not through the Setup program. (I used installutil because this is my development environment)
Has anyone else had this problem?

I do not know about setup projects, sorry. The database project, that does not want to convert, what is the extension of the project file .dbproj or something else?
Also can you post the conversion log info? It should contain information why it does not convert.

Setup projects are not supported in VS11. You will have to migrate to another setup tool like WiX or InstallShield. IS has a trigger template to install the Lite version.

Were you able to successfully convert your database projects? If not, please pass on the conversion log so that we can investigate.
