convert net express project

Getting the below error when trying to convert the netexpress 5.1 project to Visual COBOL through import option under file menu. Any idea how to fix this?

Migration aborted as too many projects would be created - this may be due to many targets or files with unique settings.

RE: convert net express project

Which version of Visual COBOL are you using?

This problem may be remedied in the latest VC release as we have done a lot of work in the area of the import wizard.

The error message is quite specific in that your NX project exceeds the current limitations of the import wizard. The wizard will attempt to create a new VC project for each built .EXE or .DLL or .int/gnt in your NX build window. How many of these build targets does your NX project contain?

If you cannot get around this using the latest release then you may have to manually create your new projects in Visual Studio and add your sources to them.
