VS2008 support for Solution files

description

Solutions should work on VS2008
 
Steps required to implement this:
  • Clone your solution file, typically ending it with "VS2008.sln" to make it explicit that this is the "beta" solution file.
  • Open in VS2008, and complete the upgrade wizard. This will remove from the project files the MSBuild import of WPF targets, as they are built-in VS2008.
  • Close the solution, and open each project file with a text/XML editor. Towards the end of the file, add the following Import:
     
    <Import Project="$(MSBuildBinPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" />
    <Import Project="$(MSBuildBinPath)\Microsoft.WinFX.targets" />
    </Project>
