Unable to read project file.Configured to use IIS

description

I am trying to convert a VS 2012 project to a VS 2008 project.
In VS 2012, the project was set to use the IIS Web server. When I attempt to open the solution using VS2008, I get "Unable to read the project file 'proj1.csproj.'

The solution is edit the .csproj with notepad and change this line :
<WebProjectProperties>
      <UseIIS>True</UseIIS>
To :
<WebProjectProperties>
      <UseIIS>False</UseIIS>
