Problem opening ssrs 2017 report with visual studio 2010 or 2012 or 2013

Problem opening ssrs 2017 report with visual studio 2010 or visual studio 2012

I am in the process of determining if ssrs 2010 and ssrs 2012 reports can be opened in Visual Studio 2017 and I found this to be succesful.

However I am now trying to open the ssrs 2017 report using Visual Studio 2010, Visual Studio 2012, and/or Visual Studio 2013 since that it what my co-workers currently use.

I am gettin getting the error message ' One or more projects in the solution were not loaded correctly. Please see the Output Window for details'.

What I see s the C':\Census\Census.rptproj : error : there is an error in the xml document (2, 2). This probably has to do with version numbers.

Thus can you tell me a ssrs 2017 report can be opened in Visual Studio 2010 or Visual Studio 2012 or Visual Studio 2013? If so, can youy tell me how to accomplish my goal?

You need to change the Target Version:
