Trying to open project in VS 2012 fails

May 13, 2014 at 8:40 PM
I am getting the following error when I try to open the ExtendedMerge2012 project in Visual Studio 2012. I am on 32 bit windows.

ExtendedMerge\ExtendedMerge.csproj: The application which this project type is based on was not found. Please try this link for further information: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?prd=12395&pver=11&sbp=ProjectTypeDeprecated&plcid=0x409&clcid=0x409&ar=MSDN&sar=ProjectCompatibility&o1=82b43b9b-a64c-4715-b499-d71e9ca2bd60

The link does supplied by Visual Studio doesn't display any information. How can I get to load the project?
