Why do .vbproj files show SOMETIMES in Solution Explorer?

P: n/a
I don't see the pattern. I have a couple of solutions that I acquired from
someone else. When I load these, I see the .vbproj and .vbproj.user files
in the Solution Explorer. BUT, when I create a solution, I don't see
them--even though they are in the folder, naturally.

What's the trick?

Thanks.

There is a Show All Files option as button on the solution explorer window.
This will show or hide all files that are in the project folder as specified
when creating the solution.

Oh maybe this is it... the person who zipped their project directroy failed
to include folder details in them. So as you unzipped they are all in the
same folder?

Nope! Not on my computers! I know about the "Show All" button. I created a trivial VB Window app; one form. Using "Show All" all that I see are the 'bin' and 'obj' folders, the assembly file and the form. No .proj files.
Tried it under 2002 and 2003 on two different computers!

Any other ideas?

TIA,

Larry

Vijay,

I created a NEW solution, and got the results that I described!

Hi Larry,

I know this question won't change the world, but like you, I'm
intrigued.

You and I have both created projects and looked in vain for the
proj and sln files. Obviously something that your friend has done to
his project is making these files visible.

Could you make a copy of one of these projects, remove as many
source files as possible while still preserving the behaviour, and
send it to me? I'd like to have a look-see.

Yours, with curiousity,
Fergus

I'll do it. Let me throw this out as something that "might" have something
to do with it. What about Source Control? When I loaded VS.NET I did NOT
include SC...because it's just me and I didn't want to fool around with it.
Any possibilities that there is some(?) connection?

Hi Larry,

Lol, I don't have SC either.

But why would Sc as a factor affect your projects and not your
friends, or vice versa? It still implies that there's something in his
files.

Fergus
