Make VS 2013 problems
 
We just upgraded one project to use VS 2013 (it was using VS 2003). I get the following problems when using the 'Make VS 2013' action:
1) Can't specify config to build (must build all configs). When specified I get:
Solution configuration 'Release|Win32' not found.
or:
Solution configuration 'Release' not found.
2) No log is produced whether the build fails or succeeds. Did the default behavior change re logging?
3) Must specify the path to devenv.exe, such as:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe
If empty, it seems to use the wrong IDE, as I get:

Pre-processing...
DocumentScan\DocumentScan.vcxproj...setting version...

Rebuilding configuration 'Debug|Win32'...
Microsoft (R) Build Engine version 4.0.30319.18408

Please send or post the .sln file and the info from http://www.kinook.com/Forum/showthread.php?t=3044

Yep, thanks!

The troubleshooting item 4500 explained what was going on. I didn't realize VS no longer forced the .sln upgrade, and that was the problem. The developer first upgraded to VS 2010 and then upgraded again to VS 2013.
