The imported project "C:\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" was not found

I got this error today when trying to open a Visual Studio 2008 project in Visual Studio 2005:


The imported project "C:\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" was not found.

Answer

Open your csproj file in notepad (or notepad++) Find the line:

<Import Project="$(MSBuildToolsPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" />

and change it to

<Import Project="$(MSBuildBinPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" />
