I have just purchased http://www.packtpub.com/directx-11-1-game-programming/book

When i try to compile any of the .sln files that come with the book i get this error (picture below)


I am using Visual studio 2012 Ultimate and i have opened an .sln file with notepad to check if there 2012 project files,here is the output.

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 12.00
# Visual Studio 2012
Project("{8BC9CEB8-8B4A-11D0-8D11-00A0C91BC942}") = "Cpp_CX", "Cpp_CX\Cpp_CX.vcxproj", "{8F845988-ACC0-4270-B93D-5FF33A39D9BF}"

I have attached the first sample project to this post for anyone else that can figure this out.

I am not sure what todo to fix this and get the sources working,thanks for reading.

Well Visual Studio 2013 RC is pretty clear on what's wrong: "This project requires Windows 8.1 or higher to load".


You could try to manually recreate project and add all files, but I doubt it'll run even if you manage to compile.
