.vbprog not installed! VB 2005 - URGENT

P: n/a
I converted a VB 03 app to VB 05 app successfully. It worked fine on my
machine at home.
I made a complete copy of the folder, copied to the machine at work and
loaded the solution .SLN. I got the error "The application for project
whatever.vbprog is not installed...."
I checked and whatever.vbprog is included in the folder.
I never had this problem with VS 2003.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

VB project files have the extension 'vproj'. Perhaps the problem is that it
has the wrong extension.
You can also just manually associate the file type with VS

Marina;

You're correct. I have the following files in the folder:

myApp.sln
myApp.suo
myApp.vbproj
myApp.vbproj.user

These were converted from VS03 to VS05 in another machine and they ran fine.
Is there any special requirement regarding copying to another machine? I
used a flash card to hold the copy.

Thanks

Bill

Here's the content of my project petrotel.sln. It works fine in my conputer
at home. I made a copy into a flash card, and ran it on the same machine, it
also worked.
When I loaded the app in the flashcard using my PC at work, I got the "...
vbproj not installed" error message.
Is this a new security feature in VS05 that I need to be aware of?

Thanks

I just found that the petrotel.suo file contains many paths pointing to the
driver letters in machine at home. For example, the flashcard was assigned
letter H: at hoem and letter G: at work.

my problem is rather simple: How can I move a VS 05 project from 1 machine
to another.
Please help!

Thanks

Bill
