Conversion VS2005 Solution to VS2008 Solution

Hi

I am converting a VS2005 Solution to VS2008 Solution and all went well
I checked the Solution file (sln) and Project file (csproj) into SVN - I
checkout the solution from SVN and it want to convert again???

Anyone else had this problem ???

Thanks

Can't say I have, despite using Subversion and VS2008.

Have you checked what the project and solution files look like?

Thanks for Jon's prompt reply.

Hello sippyuconn

According to your description, VS 2008 Convert Wizard shows up again after
you checked out solution from SVN. If I misunderstood anything, please
don't hesitate to correct me.

The solution file is a text-based file that contains information about one
or more projects. You can see file format marker and Project version is in
the first few lines. Eg:
================================================== ==
Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00
# Visual Studio 2008
================================================== ==

VS 2008 convert wizard will updates the version number in the .sln file to
10.00 for VS 2005 project. Moreover, convert wizard also updates the
project files (.csproj, .vbproj, etc.) to control the version of the build
tools that will be used.Eg:
================================================== ==
<Project ToolsVersion="3.5" DefaultTargets="Build"
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003">
<PropertyGroup>
================================================== ==

Have you ever tried to check if SVN made any change in .sln file or project
file? I suggest we may use Diff tool to compare the versions (checked in
and checked out) by SVN. I think there might be some information misleads
VS 2008 Conversion Wizard to recognize the solution as VS 2005 project.

Hope this helps. Please try the above method and let me know the result. We
are glad to assist you.
Have a great day,
Best regards,
Wen Yuan

Hello Ashutosh,
Thanks for your reply.

Have you ever tried to click the "Notify me of replies" button in
right-upper corner of page?
http://www.microsoft.com/communities...aspx?pg=2&cat=
&lang=&cr=&guid=&sloc=en-us&dg=microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.csharp&flt r
=&mid=c6b5ece4-4eb3-47ea-8187-f03ee1c1caa1&tid=ddf19de1-3cb7-4d32-9be6-ab467
216517e.

After clicked on the button, it will display as "Notification enabled". I'm
not sure what's the link it refers to. But this features seems work fine on
side. Do you found any issue on this feature?

Hope this helps.

Wen Yuan
