.sln = not a valid Visual Studio Project File

Hello!

I didnt find this error in the MS documentation, but struggling with it
since a few days. Before I lost all my hope, let me ask you for a hint on
that, so I might come out of that dilemma:

I want to open and work with a project, distributed as open source.
I downloaded the whole source (C#) and upped it to my webserver.
I want to connect via web extensions. What seems to work on all my other
projects.

Ive created a own virtual directory for it. When I try to open the .sln file
in VS i get (translated, so dont take it word by word)

" The file you have choosen ist not a valid Visual Studio project solution
file "

I also have a .csproj file, which (to my confusion) works, but of course
just does not give me the whole project, only a part of it.

I do: Open project from web -> type in my ip -> i get a list of files in
that folder -> I choose the .sln -> I get the error described as above.

Can you give me an advice? Or direct me to a page where this things are
discussed?

You would really help me with that!

Thank you,

Erich

AFAIK the sln file is human readable. I would open it to see how it looks...

Thx Partice

well, oc I did this.
I cant find anything wrong.
There is only one point that needs to be set to a path.
The other stuff looks like this example:

Project("{FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}")
....

or, on the following "global" section like this:

GlobalSection(ProjectConfiguration) = postSolution
{1F4DD1F6-7102-4E2B-BB25-846348431CE3}.Debug.ActiveCfg = Debug|.NET
....
if this is right or wrong, I really cant tell ... because I dont understand
a word.

Hasnt anybody an idea of where errors like this are USUALY located?
I just need a direction, because everything that was on my mind, I already
tried to the fullest.

thx

I think your problem is that you're trying to open a project but then you
point to a solution file. I don't think you can open a solution from the
web, your solution should be local and the projects that the solution
contains are opened from the web.

You could try creating a blank solution (File->New->Blank Solution...) and
then doing File->Add Project->Existing Project From Web... to add the
projects that you want.
