Cannot open any sample project or create a new project using a template due to wrong MS VS11 version .jsproj

    Question

  • Hey there,

    I cannot open any project with Visual Studio 2011 Beta Express due to the wrong version of VS.

    I installed a fresh and clean version of Windows 8 Release Preview and downloaded the tools and sdk in German from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516 .

    I can even not start a new javascript project due to the same error.

    I don't understand why this is not working. Any hints? What am I doing wrong? I'm going to deinstall VS by now and I will try the English version ...

  • You should use the Visual Studio 2012 RC release, it matches the Windows 8 RP you installed. You said you used VS11 Beta, which matched up with the Windows 8 CP release.
