I just downloaded the 2017 version of Visual Studio and tried to get it to execute website code that I developed with Visual Studio in 2008. But, I received a warning message that stated VS needs to make non-functional changes to the project in order to
enable the project to open in released versions newer than VS 2010 SP1 without impacting project behavior. So, how do I do that?

You need to migrate your project from Visual Studio 2008 to Visual Studio 2017.
I suggest you to create a backup of your project before you try to open it in Visual Studio 2017.
Then try to open your project in visual Studio 2017.
When you will get a message then let the Visual Studio make the changes and try to open the project.
Once project get open, Try to execute it and check everything working properly.
If that not work then you can try to create a new project in Visual Studio 2017 and try to copy the code manually from old project to new project.
Make sure you add all the references and dll files that you are using in old project and which are necessary to run the project.

Thank you for responding. After I tried to open my 2008 project in visual Studio 2017, I received a warning message that stated VS needs to make non-functional changes to the project in order to enable the project to open. But, there was nothing to suggest
how to get VS 2017 to do that. That is why I asked for help with this. But, I like your idea about creating a new project and transferring my old code to the new project. I will do that. Thank you.
