there are source files but no project file or solution file

I am working on a project, which only provides some .vb, .aspx, and other files.

But there is no solution file or project file. How can I instal them in the development environment under .net visual studio 2005?

1. Open Web Site from VS.NET 2005 to open this folder;

2. File -> Save All after you open the folder. VS.NET will pop up a window to let you save the project.

Usually, after you save it, a .sln file will be saved to folder \Visual Studio 2005\Projects\YOURFOLDERNAME\ i f you don't change the folder for saving.

Hope it helps.

 In vs dot net projects and solution are saved to different directory. solutions save in that directory where you installed your VS dot net.

but if you want to save both projects and solution in the same directory you have to do this:

File > New Project

in the left side expand Other Project Types > Visual Studio Solutions

Give a name into the name textbox and choose a location to hold this solution.

then exit from the VS dot net and open the solution where you saved it. 

Now expand the solution and right click on it choose Add > New Web site. you have to save this projects on the same location(select the solution name here). Then you'll see a dialog box from there you chechked the last one " create a new web site in the existing location" and press ok

Now you can find solution and your project altogether.


Please don't forget to click on "Mark as Answer" if I trust you

The selected file is not a valid Visual Studio solution file.
I have the VS version 7.0.9466. When i am trying to open the DotNetNuke.sln (of the new DNN2.0b1) i am getting this error. Is it because it is made with a newer version of the Visual Studio?

Converting HTM files to ASPX files in Visual Studio 2005
Hi,   In Visual Studio 2003, when you renamed an html file to an aspx file, Visual Studio, first prompted you to confirm you wanted to change the file extension, and then asked if you wanted to add a code page. I have tried this in Visual Studio 2005 and this no longer happens, instead I have to manually add the Page Directive and code behind file. Can anyone help as I can't seem to work out how to do this in VS2005. I have Visual Studio Professional Version 8.0.50727.42 install on Windows 2003 Server with default settings.

"The selected file is not a valid Visual Studio solution file" error when opening solution from remote webserver
Hi all, This is my first post here. I have a problem I can not find the solution for. When I open a VS .NET solution file from a remote webserver (VMWare, Windows 2003 Standard) in VS.NET 2003, I get the error mentioned in the subject. When I open the same file from a local folder, it opens just fine (it's the DotNetNuke 3.0.13 solution file). I also have no problem creating a new webproject from VS.NET on the same (virtual) server, and edit and create new files in that solution / project. Any ideas why this happens?The reason I wan't to use the VMWare solution is that I'm not allowed to...
