Can't open Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an excel Add In that I created back in 2012 at that time I was using VS2012 and office 2010, Im now using VS2012 (still) and office 2016, when I try to open the Add In project in visual studio it now won’t open.

    Iin the Error output window I get the error:

    “Warning 1              '.', hexadecimal value 0x00, is an invalid character. Line 2, position 1.                GB200\Projects\ ExcelPublishAddIn V2\ExcelPublishAddIn\ExcelPublishAddIn.vbproj 2              1              Miscellaneous Files”?

    this is the where the error is highlighted in the .vbproj file:

    <Project ToolsVersion="4.0" DefaultTargets="Build" xmlns="">
      <Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath)\$(MSBuildToolsVersion)\Microsoft.Common.props" Condition="Exists('$(MSBuildExtensionsPath)\$(MSBuildToolsVersion)\Microsoft.Common.props')" />

    The Add In needs an update and I cant open the project to edit it, any Ideas?

    I know theres not much to go on but thats all VS is giving me.
