I have a rather old SharePoint project that I believe goes back to SP2007, and is currently working fine with SP2010. My current process for creating a .wsp for sp2010 is to use WSPBuilder. It seems that WSPBuilder is not compatible with SP2013/.net4.

What can I do to 1) have VS13 build a wsp, this old project needs to be migrated into an SP2013 project? or 2) can I create the wsp manually or through a plugin like WSPBuilder?


Use a makeCab utility to create one & try to use it. Before that I suggest you to extract a SP 2013 compatible .WSP & see all the artifacts present & whether they match your old .WSP inner files.

  • Thanks.. wasn't wanting to do this since the manifest would be a pain to setup, but I'll give it a shot. – ferr Mar 21 '14 at 19:52
