So . . . while attempting to load a VS.Net 2003 web project into VS.Net 2005, I was continually blocked by this error:
"The project file must be opened in the Visual Studio IDE and converted to the latest version before it can be built by MSBuild"
Hmm . . . I thought I just did open it in the IDE.
Our next strategy was to create a new 2005 web project and import all the files from the previous project.
Oddly, there was no option available to create a new web project. It turns out that the previous owner of my dev environment had never installed the Visual Web Developer feature.
Once that feature was installed it ripped right into the conversion.
