I get the following error message when I try to convert the file above
using <right-click> "View Data Grid":

Notice that the error says "Line 37" but the file in question only has
27 lines.

When I remove the "extensions" element, the file is processed and
properly converted.

If anyone out there has Visual Studio, can you please check both

How do I go about reporting this to Microsoft?

This is my version info:
