WinForms Converter crashes with Visual Studio 15.8
|2018.3.1016||Converter for WinForms|
The Winforms converter crashes when converting a project. This happens with Visual Studio 2017 18.7 or newer. This is caused because in the latest version of Visual Studio a type used in the converter was moved. Detailed information can be found here: Version used in VS 15.8 not available on NuGet (Breaks VS extension using MSBuildWorkspace) Issue #29334
This is an issue that Microsoft should provide a fix for and at this point, there is nothing we can do but wait.
As a workaround, I can suggest using version 15.7 where the converter is working (the converter works well with Visual Studio 2015 as well).
