Create 'ASP.NET MVC 3' Project with Xamarin Studio 4.3.0(the Load/Save setup 'MSBuild(Visual Studio 2012)')

Then I can't open the project with vs2012

I must delete something in the project file xml:

<Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath)\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v10.0\WebApplications\Microsoft.WebApplication.targets" />

4.Then I can open the project with vs2012

Problem is : The project template of Xamarin Studio is error for the VS201x

Please help me fix this.

With Visual Studio 2013 there still seem to be some problems here. Xamarin Studio does not add an import to a new ASP.NET project and when the project is opened in Visual Studio 2013 it migrates the project file. After migrating an ASP.NET project will run with VS 2013 however an MVC project has errors and does not run.
