VDProj to WiX Converter error: 's' is an unexpected token. Expecting white space

Hi, I am running:
- VDProj to WiX Converter, version 1.2.124
- Windows 7 Home Premium x64
- Visual Studio 2008 Version 9.0.30729.1 SP (I have installed SP 1 for VS 2008, however I'm not sure if it installed properly)
- Wix Toolset v3.7.1224.0

Although I am using Visual Studio 2008, the Setup & Deployment project targets a .NET 2.0 C# Windows Forms application (not .NET 3.5 as is the default in VS 2008). It also targets a C# custom action project (which I could change to a WiX Custom Action if need be)

To reproduce the error I am getting:

When I right-click my Setup & Deployment project in VS 2008, and select "Convert to WiX Project" an error message appears saying "Some errors occurred during conversion. For more information, see the Error List."

The error list shows the following error:

Error 6 VDProj to WiX Converter error: 's' is an unexpected token. Expecting white space. Line 6, position 44.

Sergey,

Thanks for the reply. That must have been a typo - I do have v1.2.125 of the Vdproj to WiX converter. I just verified this now. What else can you suggest?

Hi John,

Please send me the '.vdproj' file on the support email. I will try to find the problematic Xml attribute.
