Is there a way to do this?

Just open the solution with Visual Studio 2012 and the conversion dialog will appear. Go through the steps and you'll be upgraded. You may have to modify some of the code after the conversion due to compatibility issues, but the rest of the process should
be fairly straight-forward. I recently upgraded from 2003 to 2010 and had no problems. I've upgrade from 2005 to 2012 and didn't have problems on a different project.

Will there be a problem is the project is attached to Source Control... or should I just unbind it

If you use Visual SourceSafe you are going to run into problems and will want to get rid of the vspscc, vsscc, and scc file extensions. Any other source control shouldn't cause any problems, but no guarantees. Preferrence for VS projects is Team Foundation
I recommend making a backup before attempting the conversion. Though Visual Studio will give you the opportunity to make a backup during the conversion process.

Getting this when Im trying to update the project...

Can you get to the project settings within Visual Studio? From the sound of it, I assume the answer is "No." But if you can get the project settings open in VS, then go to the "Web" tab and under the "Servers" section make sure that "User Visual Studio Development
Server" is selected. It's likely these settings are currently configured to "Use Local IIS Web server."
You may be able to do this in VS2003 prior to attempting the conversion and I recommend doing it that way if possible.
If you can't get to the project settings in VS2003 or newer then you may have to edit the Web_PLR.csproj file in a text editor to remove some references to IIS before attempting the conversion. We may need you to post the content of your project file(s)
in order for us to help further.

"FILE_VERSION" = "9237"
"ENLISTMENT_CHOICE" = "COMPULSORY"
"PROJECT_FILE_RELATIVE_PATH" = ""
"NUMBER_OF_EXCLUDED_FILES" = "0"
"ORIGINAL_PROJECT_FILE_PATH" = "http://localhost/WebPLR/Web_PLR.csproj"
"NUMBER_OF_NESTED_PROJECTS" = "0"
"SOURCE_CONTROL_SETTINGS_PROVIDER" = "PROVIDER"
This is the content of Web_PLR.csproj

I haven't played around with project files much, but here's what I would try.
Make a backup of the file first
Modify the "ORIGINAL_PROJECT_FILE_PATH" to point to the local path on your computer (i.e. C:\Users\MyUser\My Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\Web_PLR.csproj). Attempt to launch into Visual Studio.
You can probably remove the "SOURCE_CONTROL_SETTINGS_PROVIDER" and "FILE_VERSION" options, but Visual Studio should allow you to unbind the project from source control during the conversion. I'm not sure how picky Visual Studio is with the other options.
A last resort is to create a new project in Visual Studio and just copy the resources over to the new project from the old one. It would be dissappointing if you had to go that route, though.
