attempting to compile using CVB v6.6 project file

Hello, 

I am new to Visual Studio, and a novice user for CVB. However, I have well documented code that reportedly compiles fine on compaq visual basic v6.6. I have successfully installed Visual Studio 2013 (and 2015) as well as the necessary Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016. When I try to compile the code, i get this error: 

warning MSB8018: No outputs specified for item "myCode.f90". Its custom build command will be skipped.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

Update: I have since discovered a project conversion option that seems to work.

I found (long time ago) that the project conversion utility from CVF to IVF did not engage the IVF dependency checker, so multi-module projects required manual selection of files to determine the correct compilation order which would allow the multi-module build to complete.  The solution to that problem was to delete all source files from the project and then re-select the same files manually for inclusion in the project (which is easy since source items can be selected in bulk), whereupon the dependency checker started working.

I haven't seen that. The dependency checker shouldn't need "engaging", but I have seen cases where a recreation of the project was necessary to get it to work right. It may be that deleting the hidden .suo file is sufficient.
