When trying to open a vc6 project with VC2010 Express, it refuses to convert the dsp files.

Note, this is not a line end issue, the dsp files have CRLF line ends.

so is this fixed or or not? by fixed, I mean does vc10 now correctly convert vc6 dsp files?

As a workaround, you may convert to '.vcproj' using VC++ Express 2008 as an intermediary step, and then from here to '.vcxproj' using VC++ Express 2010.

Here is an project which builds a DLL and some sample applications that fails with Visual C++ Express 2010

It works perfectly with Visual C++ Express 2008

Congratulations - I think you've moved pretty quickly on this; looking forward to the next release.

VC10 fails to convert DSP files. This presents quite a serious problem,
and I have this problem also, and could supply more DSP project files
if this would help.

Am pleased to read you have 'fixed this issue in our internal builds',
but WHEN is the next public release of VC10 likely to contain this
fix, and how do we get it?
