I updated ArcGIS from 10.1 to 10.2 and recompiled all Addins with ArcObjects 10.2. I am having an issue with 1 addin that accesses a custom tool in a toolbox and want to debug the project. However, when i hit run I get a "...the debug target '' is missing" erro message. The path is still set to the Desktop10.1 target - HOW DO I RESET IT to Desktop10.2 in VS 2010 EXPRESS. I only found instruction on how this can be dine in the full version if VS but this option is not avaialble in the express version.

Found it. Open ProjectName.vbproj.user (Where ProjectName is the actual name of the project) in notepad and change Desktop10.1 to Desktop 10.2:

Program C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\bin\ArcMap.exe
