I just installed Composer XE on Visual Studio 2008. I have an existing installation of 11.1 (067) with many projects.
I understand that the .icproj project files need to be converted, but this has been a very unpleasant experience with lots of unknown errors and confusing behaviour.
- After opening a solution, the "Visual Studio Project converter" opens and wants to convert the solution and projects that do NOT use Intel C++. But does nothing to the files. - It cannot seem convert existing projects if the old .icproj file is present.
Fortunately, uninstalling the XE (12.0) Visual Studio Integration, and re-installing the 11.1 (067) Studio Integration restored sanity, and I can continue to work using the 11.1 compilers.
