I recently upgraded from visual studio 2008 to 2013. I am trying to open the .sln file from 2008 in 2013 and it all works except for the setup file which says the wrong version is downloaded and incompatible. I think I have to edit something in the text editor but not sure.

What I have tried:

I tried downloading 2010 and it too brought back the setup file is incompatible.

Exactly the same question - about opening an installer project in a recent version of Visual Studio.

With exactly the same answer.

And watch your tone.

VS2013 does not support setup projects anymore, but you can download an extension here:
