Hello John,

I found the cause of the issue. The fact is that Visual Studio 2017 started to generate ProjectGuid in another format. The previous format was '{Guid}' and the new one is 'Guid' (without curly brackets). The converter expects the old format. That is why you get the error. I will fix this issue and will send you a new build. What edition of VDproj Converter (Professional or Standard) do you use?

Hello Sergey,

I can confirm that the fix correctly created the merge module.

Thanks
