VSS 2005 and VS 2003 question

Hi there,

I have one another question on VSS 2005 and VS 2003.

We had few projects built in VS 2003 and we had all of those projects
under the VSS 6.0 until now. But as part of our development environment
up gradation our idea is slowly move few projects from VSS 6.0 to VSS
2005. As a test we did move an ASP.NET project that was built in VS
2003 project (no solution file) from VSS 6.0 to VSS 2005 and the move
was successfully (not directly but the same traditional process, chap
off all the bindings from sln file and also the .vbproj file and the
remaining source safe related files from the project root folder).

Now my idea is to create a working folder for that project that's
under new VSS 2005 and get the latest version of it and open it in VS
2003. Like I said the project doesn't have a .sln file associated
with the project. So when I try opening it by double clicking it on the
..vbproj and a dialog box popped up saying that the project will be
converted to VS2005. I have attached a word document with the screen
shots for better understanding.

How do I prevent opening the projects in VS 2005 in my case? Have I
done any thing wrong during the move from VSS 6.0 to VSS 2005?

I also tried opening it up by right clicking on the .vbproj file and
open it up in VS 2003 but its throwing an error , 'The project you are
trying to open is a web project. You need to open it by specifying its
URL path'.

Any clue on this?

Please advice.

Note: I am not sure if this is the right place to post this kind of
questions. If its not please help me with the group name where i could
post it at.

Thank You,

its not vss. when vs2005 is installed, it mapped as the default application
for project files. you need a vs2003 solution file to open the proj under
vs2003 or you can start vs2003, and open the proj.

This is not actually true. VS 2005 uses a intermediate program (Visual
Studio Version Selector) to read the schema of the project or solution
file. If the schema is in Visual Studio 8 format then it launches VS
2005. However, if the schema is in Visual Studion 7.x then it launches
VS.NET 2003.

This works like this by default, however, if a VS 2005 beta version was
installed and not correctly uninstalled, then you might experience this
issue.

Thanks for the reply. I also did try both the ways by right clicking on
the .vbproj and by File/open project no luck i am getting the same
error

'The project you are trying to open is a web project. You need to
open it by specifying its
URL path'.

thanks

We have VS.NET 2003, .NET 1.1, and SQL Server 2000 installed locally on each of our developer workstations. We will need to keep these tools installed for maintaining old applications, but intend on developing new applications using ASP.NET 2.0, VS 2005, and SQL Server 2005. Are there any barriers in running these products side by side assuming we wait to install the live versions released in a couple weeks? Thanks in advance. Mark
