I just installed VS11 professional version on windows 8 consumer preview OS.
I tried to create a win32 console app, wizard fails with following error:
Microsoft Visual Studio 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\VC\VCWizards\default.vcxproj' cannot be opened because its project type (.vcxproj) is not supported by this version of the application. To open it, please use a version that supports this type of project. OK
Not sure what i'm missing. Anyone here can help me? <img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/HDUsd.jpg" alt="This is the screenshot during error">
Here's what fixed it for me, check your User environment variables for VCHOME, VCINSTALLDIR and vsinstalldir.
X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\
X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\VC\
X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\
depending VS 2012 or 2013.
Couldn't find the answer. Re-installation of VS11 fixed the issue.
Run VS2011 first and than drag and drop project file in it. That helped me.
For those who come to this thread with the same problem but for VS2015: installing Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 fixed the problem for me.
