VS 2012 Projects "Unsupported" in VS 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a solution with several projects in it that were created with VS 2012 Ultimate that was pushed to TFS.  When I pull it from TFS and try to open the solution from Visual Studio 2012 Shell (Integrated), I get an "Unsupported" error dialog.

    Here is the "Copy Information":

    Unsupported
    This version of Visual Studio does not have the following project types installed or does not support them. You can still open these projects in the version of Visual Studio in which they were originally created.
    - AppWeb, "C:\App\AppWeb\AppWeb.csproj"
    - App, "C:\App\App\App.csproj"
    - AppCommon, "C:\App\AppCommon\Common.csproj"


    No changes required
    These projects can be opened in this version of Visual Studio without changing them. They will continue to open in Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and in this version of Visual Studio.
    - App, "C:\App\App.sln"

    I am assuming that there is an issue with VS 2012 Shell.  Is there any way that I can add C# & Web Application support on this version?  ...or am I incorrect that this is the problem?

    Thanks,

    D.Brooks

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.

    The VS2012 shell doesn’t support these apps, so you would get this issue, if you want to open it, you need to install the VS IDE which supports them like the VS2012 Ultimate version.
