    Hi.
    I'm trying to open the silverlight examples sln and get that upgrade sln files dialog.
    click next, finish and get error for every proj file in examples.
    The error is:
    Conversion Issues - Examples.Calendar.CS\Examples.Calendar.CS.csproj:
    Error converting project file. Modifying the XML of an imported project file is not allowed. Open that project file directly.

    so I cannot open this examples.
    Thanks

    Hello Adiel,

    If you are using Visual Studio 2008 and Silverlight 2 you should not be getting the upgrade project wizard. Can you provide us with more information about your development environment? OS version, Visual Studio version, Silverlight version, etc.

    Hello Adiel,

    The examples' projects are manually modified by us to allow them to work on our development machines, our test servers, the online demos and the client machines. I suppose those changes prevent Visual Studio to properly upgrade them from Silverlight 2 to Silverlight 3. We do not provide native Silverlight 3 example projects, but we will do in the near future. At the moment you could just copy and paste the code from our Silverlight 2 examples in your Silverlight 3 project, instead of opening our example projects.

    I have Vista Ultimate SP1, VS 2008 SP1 and SL2 SDK / Tools for VS 2008 SP1.  I did have SL3 stuff installed but have now uninstalled it in the hope that I could open the Telerik samples - no joy there, the samples projects are all unavailable in the solution as it wants to upgrade them.

    Please can you look into this and let us know what we can do to open the example projects - makes it tough to evaluate the controls in a tight timeframe when you need to do all this extra messing around to try them out!

    Thanks,

    Shaun

    OK, after all that time trying I took a different line of attack on google and found this ...

    http://blogs.msdn.com/amyd/archive/2009/03/18/switching-from-silverlight-3-tools-to-silverlight-2-tools.aspx

    Works for me (still asks to upgrade but actualy loads the projects now!).
