When you’re trying to open your SSIS or SSRS solution, you will get a message that the migration has failed or ‘The application which this project type is based on was not found.

You can open rptproj files with Visual Studio 2017 with an extension.  Follow the following steps to get going.

  1. Open ‘Microsoft Visual Studio 2017‘.
  2. In the menu bar, expand ‘Tools‘, then choose ‘Extensions & Updates‘. to install an extension.
  3. Search for ‘Microsoft Reporting Services Projects‘, and install this extension.
  4. To complete the installation, shut down all windows and instances of Microsoft Visual Studio 2017. Then the installer will start.
  5. Try to open your solution or projects (*.rptproj) again.

It sounds like your sysdiagrams table somehow lost the IDENTITY property on the diagram_id column.  Using the following SQL I was able to drop the sysdiagrams table and rebuild.  Note you will lose any existing diagrams (if you had any during this process)

DROP TABLE dbo.sysdiagrams;
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[sysdiagrams]
    [name] [sysname] NOT NULL,
    [principal_id] [int] NOT NULL,
    [diagram_id] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) PRIMARY KEY,
    [version] [int] NULL,
    [definition] [varbinary](max) NULL,
    CONSTRAINT [UK_principal_name] UNIQUE ([principal_id],[name])

EXEC sys.sp_addextendedproperty 
  @value=1 ,
