What is the error?  And what is the value of startDate ?  and what is ' :s ' ?

The problem is not going to be your version of Visual Studio, but the value of startDate, or what ' :s' is doing.

You'll see that this works fine:
		var startDate = DateTime.Now;
		var test = startDate.ToUniversalTime();
