Windows 10 update kills Visual Studio 2008 project access
For starters, I really DO have to keep using VS 2008. And since there seems to be no way to stop Win10 updates, I need to know how to deal with the problem where my VS 2008 projects are inaccessible after the Win 10 creators update (and accessible once again after I revert back to the previous build for the 50th time). When I try to access any of my projects, I get an error like this:
Unable to read the project file 'ecotScan.vbproj'.
2008\Projects\ecotScan\ecotScan.vbproj(722,61): The imported project
ework.VisualBasic.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the
<Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on the disk.
Of course, what is MOST frustrating is that they are messing up their own product...but somehow I doubt MS is real concerned about that little fact. So unless there IS a way to completely stop the Win10 updates, I'm hoping someone can tell me how to once again access my VS 2008 projects after the creators update is forced onto my PC. TIA
