Just downloaded the 1.8.0.3 update. I'm trying to convert a 1.7.0.0 project, so I use the 'Create new project from other format' menu item. I select the old project, with the format 'SHFB 1.7.0.0' and click 'Convert'.

I get the following error after about 20s:

Unable to convert project. Reason: Error CVT0005:Error reading project from '(path)' (last property = ShowFeedbackControl): An attempt was made to set an unknown or read-only property: ShowFeedbackControl Value: False

Has anyone had a similar issue?

Support for the ShowFeedbackControl property was removed from the project but I forgot to exclude it in the project converters.  Just open the old project in a text editor and delete the ShowFeedbackControl property from it.  You can then convert it.
