Trying to get some Windows 8.0 Visual Studio 2012 C++ solution files to work on Visual Studio 2013 C++ and Windows 8.1, when I go to open the solution file it says I need to "Retarget your Windows Store app to Windows 8.1"

okay what the frick, I'll play along... Now I need to open the folder that contains the solution file, okay I finally found the "Source Control Explorer" but it won't let me open anything, it's all greyed out except for the refresh button?? Do I need to sign up for something to use this feature just so I can open my older project? I really hate signing up for stuff, plus it's not even clear what exactly I need to sign up for...

 

Finding working in Visual Studio 2013 C++ and Windows 8.1 to be pretty frustrating so far...

Skip the Team Foundation stuff.  That only applies to people who use it and need to make a branch.

 

I'm guessing VS will show the solution as "cannot load" in the solution explorer.  I'm guessing the option you want appears if you right-click the solution.

Are you actually creating a Windows Store App?  Or did you download the Win8 App VS, and not the Windows Desktop Development VS?  There are different versions specific to what you're developing.
