Project Migration Error – StackFlair-master

An hour back I was trying to generate a flair like StackOverflow and after a bit of research I landed up StackFlair Project by Rebecca Chernoff on GitHub.

Project - StackFlair - github

Right now I’m running Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate on my PC. I tried to start the project and it asked me to migrate. Fair enough. I did. And it didn’t go well. Threw an error with this nice message:

Project Upgrade Error- StackFlair.Web



I really had no idea and I again asked to google search for help, see how smart I am 😉

Landed up on ASP.NET MV3 Release Notes and it solved the problem.

This line helped me resolving the issue:

Locate the ProjectTypeGuids element and replace {F85E285D-A4E0-4152-9332-AB1D724D3325} with {E53F8FEA-EAE0-44A6-8774-FFD645390401}.


If you see, the same project type text was mentioned in the error description. I did the replacement and it worked.
