Upgrading existing Xamarin Visual Studio 2015 solution to VS 2017

When I open my Visual Studio 2015 Xamarin project in VS 2017, next to each individual project its states "(incompatible)". Is it possible to upgrade an existing xamarin visual studio project to VS 2017 or do i need to create a new one solution and port each class over manually? Note, I notice if I create a new Xamarin solution in VS 2017, it only creates Android and iOS projects since I guess the windows phone platform is dead. My existing project has additional project such as: Windows, WinPhone and UWP.

    If you add the Windows Universal Platform tools in to visual studio you should see the option to make a windows universal app which can run on a windows phone. Question if you right click on the incompatible project and select reload does it give a better error message about why it is incompatible?
