RC and RES files have always been dangerous to rely on. Generally hold your bitmaps as bitmaps, and your dialog, menus and text as standard text files. Then script them or manually drag and drop them when you go onto a new version of Visual Studio.

You are basically asking Microsoft to make everything backwards compatible just so you can just pick up a prior project and compile it on the later version. The toolchain is long and subject to change and that is NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. You always have the option to stay with and compile your code on VS2008.

A resource file is an ancillary file, do you expect your old manifest files to be backward compatible on the new compiler as well?

I am with Richard if you think Microsoft should support stuff to this level try the forums. I however feel you are being totally unreasonable its a few minutes work to deal with and you are almost certainly going to get a longer list of code changes that you will be required to vet with the new version. Out of interest how many code warnings and deprecated calls did you get when you loaded the old code.
In vino veritas
