Workflow foundation annotations and upgrade problems

One of the cool new features of the Workflow Foundation in the .Net framework 4.5 is the annotations. This gives you the option to at nice comments to your workflows.

In the designer you just have to right click your activity and choose the annotations menu item to add, edit or delete annotations.

If you upgrade your Visual Studio project from Visual Studio 2010 you can't see these menu options. The problem is that the upgrade wizard doesn't change the target framework, so if you go into properties window of your project and change the Target framework to .Net Framework 4.5 or newer, then you will have the option to add annotations to your workflow.
