I am unable to load Prism 4.2 core project, Prism.Core.csproj, into VS Express 2013 for Windows Desktop.

I get an error message when I try to open the BasicMVVMQuickstart_Desktop quickstart

The Prism.Core project is a Portable Class Library which means that it can be used on several platforms without recompiling the assembly. As far as I know, this type of projects are not supported in Visual Studio 2013 Express editions which is why you are getting errors when trying to open the solution.

Take into account that the new version of Prism is still under development so this project might be changed or removed in the future. Also, once the final drop for this version is released, I believe you might be able to obtain this assembly compiled from a NuGet package, which as far as I know should allow you to use it in express editions without problems.
