Just confused by what is going on, not sure what they mean by importer.....

Error      1      
Cannot autodetect which importer to use for "Images\threerings.png". There are no importers which handle this file type. Specify the importer that handles this file type in your project.

    I think that means that the png format is not supported by any image converters (used by Visual Studio) that are installed on your system.

    (Try converting it yourself to a bitmap)
