I just bought VDProj to WiX Converter, Standard, installed it and kicked off my VS2008 solution into VS2012, right click on one incompatible setup project and I got the following error. I then rebooted to no avail, then tried to uninstall, re-install, no more luck.

I sent an email already with screen shot (Fri 4/26/2013 4:10 PM CST) but I am hoping for a quick resolution through the forum. I am using Windows 7, 64 bit. I suspect some mix up in the registry. The product is obviously installed since VS gives me the "Convert to Wix Project" but VS doesn't find it.

Forget about this and my sincere apologies (I was tired last night). The error message told me what was wrong and what to do (install Wix from http://wix.codeplex.com/) but I got confused between the naming of the two products. Problem fixed.
