Can anyone help? I have a solution file and all is well... I can open and close it etc... Without issues... It has never been a VS 2005 proj ... Its a brand new project / Solution with everything created from scratch in VS 2008...
So i decided to install the web deployment addition to VS 2008. (the vs 2008 version of course) .....
i..e Highligh the web proj in my solution and goto build and choose Add Web Deployment Project.... All seems to go well... But the next time i open it, it wants to CONVERT it .. using the conversion wizard... After conversion i checked the conversion log
and it appears the project is the deployment project that was converted.....
I have tried resaving and reopening even after conversion but every time i open the solution in VS 2008 it wants to convert it again......
If i remove the web deployment from the solution then the problem is fixed...
HELP! ... surely somebody else must be experiencing this problem???
Thanks in advance

I cannot repro your issue with WDP (download from
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyId=0AA30AE8-C73B-4BDD-BB1B-FE697256C459&displaylang=en), which my website is using .Net Framework 3.5 as target.
Before install it, we have to uninstall any pre-release versions of Visual Studio 2008 Web Deployment Projects (WDP).
I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Thomas Im having the same problem, Im really frustrated with this I have many time trying to fix this.
I did what you say but was useless, everybody here in the office get the version from the TFS and works fine, only me is having this problem.
Always the Conversion wizard comes up pointing to the Web Deployment project, and every time do lots of changes, but when I compare those files with server files are always identical.
