I tried to convert a working VDProj project with the converter - I get the following error messages:

error HEAT5313: Build error during harvesting: C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\12.0\bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(617,5): The OutputPath property is not set for project 'TradeNode.Feed.Millistream.Service.csproj'. Please check to make sure that you have specified a valid combination of Configuration and Platform for this project. Configuration='Debug' Platform='x86'. You may be seeing this message because you are trying to build a project without a solution file, and have specified a non-default Configuration or Platform that doesn't exist for this project.

Hello Sven,

You can start with opening the 'Configuration Manager' dialog of the solution and setting the correct configuration for the WiX project, e.g. Debug|x86 or Release|x86. If this doesn't help, please check these pages:
