I am using Microsoft VS Express 2013 to open sample code from EldoS within VS Express 2013.  When I open the sample project, I get the following errors:

Project [PROJECT NAME] could not be loaded because this edition of Visual C++ does not support classic style native application or managed projects.
[PROJECT FILE PATH][PROJECT FILE NAME] : error  : Exception from HRESULT: 0x80042003

This has me stuck in my tracks.  PLEASE HELP!!!

Thank you!

That's weird, VC++ Express used to be able to open native projects. Would you be willing to try a previous version?

Wait a minute - any chance that you got the "Web" edition? If so, you'll need the "Windows" version, get that one at http://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/download-visual-studio-vs#d-express-windows-8

You got it right.  Though the answer is to use the Windows--DESKTOP version of Visual Studio 2013.  Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction!
