Managing Projects in Visual Studio 2005 & 2008 by Michael Palermo – Interface Technical Training

One of the first tasks I tried when I installed Visual Studio 2008 was to open a Visual Studio 2005 project.  I was prompted with the following:

visual_studio_2008_conversion

This concerned me, because I wanted to open the project in Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio 2008.  My findings are as follows:

  • Solutions (once converted) can not be opened in Visual Studio 2005
  • Projects (once converted) can be opened in either IDE

 

With this information it would make sence to copy your whatever.sln file to a whatever.2008.sln file, and then open the 2008.sln file with Orcas. This will get upgraded, and you'll be able to use the same projects with both solutions. Just make sure to open the original (which you're doing already) in 2005, and the 2008.sln in 2008.
