Visual Studio Bug: This platform could not be created because a solution platform of the same name already exists.
This platform could not be created because a solution platform of the same name already exists.
Don't add a platform to a single project, add it to the entire solution by using the <New...> option on the Active solution platform dropdown in the Configuration Manager.
[h]To get around this issue.[/h]
If you do add the platform to a single project, or you add a new project at later date, you need to do the following:
[*]Close Visual Studio[/*]
[*]Open your text editor of choice i.e. Notepad, Wordpad, etc. Anything except Visual Studio.[/*]
[*]Browse to the location of the solution on disk[/*]
[*]Find the latter projects .vcproject file and open it[/*]
[*]Inside the VisualStudioProject\Configurations node you will find a series of Configuration nodes. Copy (and paste underneath) one which has a name attribute beginning with Debug| and replace the text at the end with your desired platform (i.e. Change Debug|Win32 to Debug|x64).[/*]
[*]Repeat the above step for a Release configuration.[/*]
[*]Save the changes and exit notepad[/*]
[*]Job done, return to Visual Studio[/*]
