List of Visual Studio Project Type GUIDs

There isn't an easy way to change the type of a project in Visual Studio project once it is created; for example changing a C# Class Library into a Portable Class Library (PCL). Knowing these GUIDs will allow you to edit project files like .csproj and .vbproj to easily change a project type in cases where Visual Studio will not allow using the GUI.

Notes

  1. You will find these proeprties as a <ProjectTypeGuids> element in the project file, not to be confused with <ProjectGuid> which is a unique identifier for your project.
  2. Some GUIDs are used in combination. For example <ProjectTypeGuids>{EFBA0AD7-5A72-4C68-AF49-83D382785DCF};{FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}</ProjectTypeGuids> describes a Xamarin.Android library in C#.
