VS2003 csproj to VS2010 solution

HI;

When i try to open a  csproj of a VS2003 project, VS2010 fails to convert it. I think to edit csproj file to trick VS2010. But i am not sure how to do that manually. Any help?

Following is the 2003 csproj file. Please help

<VisualStudioProject>
    <CSHARP
        ProjectType = "Web"
        ProductVersion = "7.10.3077"
        SchemaVersion = "2.0"
        ProjectGuid = "{2158E2F0-C191-45FE-A542-188F4DA5EE5A}"
    >
        <Build>
            <Settings
                ApplicationIcon = ""
                AssemblyKeyContainerName = ""
                AssemblyName = "Blalba"

You might need to do your task in two steps:
 - convert to 2005
 - convert to 2010

Thanks. Look tedious. No way without manual intervention?

You can open VS 2003 project on VS 2008 first, and then further convert it from VS 2008 to 2010. And you can download VS 2008 express for this.
