[# VS11] May I work on the same project with Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 11?

Buenas,

First we go with the answer to the question:

If. It is possible to work on the same project with Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 11 .

Now a little it more than details based on the experience of the past half year. With the arrival of Visual Studio 11, again we see in the manual "project compatibility" between projects in Visual Studio 2010 andVisual Studio 11. This story we know it from VS2005, VS2008 and VS2010; and we know that it is not so simple.

When you migraba a VS2010 project updated the project (.csproj) file and if you worked with Crystal Reports reports, or setup projects, because usually you have one or more problems that can easily live VS2005 and VS2010.

Visual Studio 11 takes a different approach and promises to not change the project files. But taking into account several changes we have in Visual Studio 11, better to see scenarios supports.

For example, I’ve created a solution with 17 projects representative of what it found almost "out of the box" in Visual Studio 2010. Since ASP projects.NET MVC 2 until Office extensions. I have included, only by way of example a project for Windows Phone, although I know that Visual Studio 11 not open it.

However, when we opened this solution with Visual Studio 11, the first thing we see is that the Visual Studio Installer project type is deprecated. This is not new, because we knew for some time, but to take this into account.

Another error, but this time configuration:

There is a little touch the innards of Visual Studio 11 to make it work with an earlier version of SQL Express.

But after a second migration we have ready the project in Visual Studio 11

Now, if you were working with ASP projects.NET MVC 2.0, you won’t other than update you to the latest version. ASP projects.NET MVC 2.0 not support and kindly suggest you that you upgrade them to version ASP.NET MVC 3 .

ASPNETMVC2WEBAPPLICATION1_NET4\ASPNETMVC2WEBAPPLICATION1_NET4. CSPROJ:THE PROJECT FILE ‘E:\SRCELBRUNO\TESTS\PROJECTCOMPATIBILITY\TESTFORVS11\ASPNETMVC2WEBAPPLICATION1_NET4\ASPNETMVC2WEBAPPLICATION1_NET4.CSPROJ’ CANNOT BE OPENED. THERE IS A MISSING INTERNET PROJECT. INTERNET: ‘{F85E285D-A4E0-4152-9332-AB1D724D3325}’ IS UNSUPPORTED BY THIS INSTALLATION.HTTP://GO.MICROSOFT.COM/FWLINK/?PRD=12395 & PVER = 11 & SBP = PROJECTTYPEDEPRECATED & PLCID = 0 × 409 & CLCID = 0 × 409 & AR = MSDN & SAR = PROJECTCOMPATIBILITY & O1 = {F85E285D-A4E0-4152-9332-AB1D724D3325 }}

Obviously, Windows Phone projects are not yet supported in Visual Studio 11 .

PhoneApp1_Net4\PhoneApp1_Net4. csproj:The project file ‘E:\srcElBruno\Tests\ProjectCompatibility\TestForVs11\PhoneApp1_Net4\PhoneApp1_Net4.csproj’ cannot be opened. There is a missing Internet project. Internet: ‘{C089C8C0-30E0-4E22-80C0-CE093F111A43}’ is unsupported by this installation. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?prd=12395 & pver = 11 & sbp = ProjectTypeDeprecated & plcid = 0 × 409 & clcid = 0 × 409 & ar = MSDN & sar = ProjectCompatibility & o1 = {C089C8C0-30E0-4E22-80C0-CE093F111A43 }}

Now, the Solution Explorer panel us makes clear, what types of projects are supported, which could not be loaded and which are incompatible.

If we try to compile the project, we will see that the same compiled correctly. But now comes the litmus test:

You can Visual Studio 2010 open the new solution and compile the modified projects?

And the answer is…. NOT! The first thing we see is the conversion wizard and perversely did so to the project of ASP.NET MVC 2.

The question at this time, dear reader, is to how demons amending this file if the Visual Studio 11 crack has told me that it can not load?. Therefore if, modify and much to the csproj file, and it is for this reason that at this point Visual Studio 2010 understands that you need to update it.

So if you update it with VS2010, so there is no more problems, unless you want to work in mixed-mode on your computer with VS2010 and VS11.

So the endpoints to be taken into account are as follows:

  • Until today Visual Studio 11 cannot be used to develop for Windows Phone.
  • With developments for AZURE, Visual Studio 11 does not yet support a clean upgrade from VS2010, but that is grounds for a full post
  • There is no support for projects of Visual Studio Installer in VS11
  • Be careful with ASP projects.NET MVC 2.0 if you think working with Visual Studio 11

The good thing about all this garden is then really work "side by side" between both Visual Studios without complications, something that before from VS2005 to VS2010 for example wasn’t so easy.

    1. Jua apuntado! que la traducción me la hace automática Bing (hasta que se acabe el trial de la beta), pocas veces leo lo que traduce. Lo tengo bastante automatizado, pero seguro que tiene más de una castaña. No por BING, sino por la poca calidad de mi spanish 😀
