I will not state that the Express version doesn't, because by the time 
it came out, I had been used to the dual conversion process because the 
Pro beta did not. However, I can also recall a mail to dev that said 
same, and I believe this person was using the Express version.

I have the Pro version now  and tried httpd package last night and the 
outcome was less than I'd hoped, it just did not do it correctly IMO. 
Which led to nothing being able to find libs to link to. I just now 
grabbed the vcproj files from my VC9 build and converted them, no 
problems so far. One thing I am now noticing is that project 
dependencies that were set in VC9 cannot be removed in VC10.
