Solution File Problem Redux

P: n/a
Hi Gang,

I posted this problem a few days ago and reported it solved but it appears
that I was a bit hasty in declaring victory. The problem is this: when I
create a new website in VS 2005 Standard, VS makes two folders called
<project name>(1) and <projectname>(2) and puts the .sln and .suo files in
the (2) folder and all the rest in the (1) folder. I thought I had this
licked by re-installing VS but then I changed the default directory for
saving new projects and it all started up again. I removed and VS and did a
clean install and still no help. Changing the 'Always Show Solution' setting
in the Options dialog does not affect this issue.

Thanks for any ideas.

Figured it out: when you create a website, VS puts the solution file in the
~/Projects folder and your source files in ~/Projects/Websites folder. It
always puts the sln and suo files in a separate folders. But if you choose
the Projects folder to be the project directory then VS will create two
project folders for you as referenced below. So, save your projects in the
Websites folder if you don't like it that way.
