VBIDE - Warning when Solution is opened

Hi,

I'm still rather green with Visual Basic, but I'm about to start maintaining
code written by another developer. As I open the Solution it gives the
following warning: "The referenced component 'VBIDE' could not be found",
and when listing the References in the References Folder it shows an error
with VBIDE where the Path for this reference is blank.

This Solution was not originally created on the workstation I'm currently
using, so is this installed with some third party app? I've searched for a
file called VBIDE, but thus far no luck finding it on my workstation.

Any suggestions? Also note this project is using Visual Basic.Net 2003.

Thanks --

It sounds like the project creates an add-in for Visual Studio and needs to
access the VBIDE. Is this an older project that was originally created in
VB 6.0?

If my guess is right, you'll need to add a new reference to the correct
assembly (I'm not sure which one it is though).
