Project Question

I moved the source code of a web project I've written to another
development machine.
Is there a way to use that same solution (without creating a new project and
adding all files and directories) and if so how can it be done?
I tried opening it and I get a "enter working copy location" and if I
continue I get "unable to get project file from the web server"
If I try some other ways I get: Unable to open.....the two need to map to
the same server location" etc.

Thanks Greg

You need to mark the directory that you copied the solution to as web shared
AND LAN shared. Web Shared is so IIS treats the directory as a virtual
directory and LAN shared so VS.NET can access the files. Once you do this,
rather than trying to open the project from VS.NET. Go to the folder and
double click on the project file (.vbproj for VB.NET). This will open the
project. When you close the project, you'll be prompted to save a new
solution file (.sln). You can save this file anywhere you'd like.
