Resolved: After converting a VS project that uses Crystal Reports to VS2010, the VS interface continually asks to convert the project every time you load it.

If visual studio continually asks to convert an already converted project every time you load it,

there is likely a text reference left in the project somewhere still pointing to the old version of crystal. 

This can be a file that was Not converted, or one the visual studio conversion tool

inadvertently copied to an incorrect folder that you are not expecting. 

To solve this download a good text file search tool like Windows Grep, Notepad++, or SeekFast, or other

and run it over the project root directory.  The tool will tell you the files which have the

incorrect version of crystal reports in them.  You can then delete or change them and won’t

get the message anymore.  In one project case I had 4 files were copied by the VS converter to the

root folder and they referenced the old version of crystal 9.1.5000 instead of the new

version 13.0.2000.0.  In another project case I got 3 files were simply not converted so the old

version was still referenced.
