Explanation:

Visual Studio 2010 can't use the local workspaces created using Visual Studio 2012 or higher versions. The local workspace feature was introduced starting Visual Studio 2012.

Solution:

Create the workspace using Visual Studio 2010 to share or use the same workspace across Visual Studio 2010 and higher versions.
