as the bug only affects VS2013, I'm lowering the severity. I'm also marking this as a regression, as I believe this used to work in VS2013.

If we're not planning on supporting VS2013 we can simply not fix it. Otherwise this is a blocker for alpha as our code must work in this IDE. Having it non-functional is not really an option.

This bug can be verified with a pre-existing project. It does not need to be verified with a template.
