Default Dumb Question for Page 8

At the bottom of Page 8, it says "Right-click on the PaidTimeOffSolution solution again and select Add New Project". But, in VS 2008 I cannot see the solution. At first I thought I was crazy, but I opened the source code and it looks different .sln opens a different layout than what I have, even though I went step-by-step. I am attaching a comparison photo. Can you assist? Thanks

Are you using the Express version of Web Developer? If so, you're limited to single project solutions (the only downside I've seen so far to the express versions).

To get around this, simply start one instance of Web Developer for each project, and alt+tab between them as needed. A bit of pain, but cheaper than buying the full version if you're strapped for cash :)

Back when I migrated the team I was on from 2003 to 2005 I remember encountering something similar (the projects weren't opening in a solution). I can't remember now what I did, but there was some option I had to check to get the solution to show up.

Once the solution is there, you should be good to go. Sorry I don't have a better answer....if I remember what it was I did, I'll post a follow up.

Hmmm, yea it is really weird that I can open the source just fine, but if I go step-by-step it disappears.

Please let me know if you remember. Thanks

Hi there,

Check the options of VS2008. Options -> Projects and Solutions -> General -> Always show solution. It should be ticked.

I hope this works!

Best regards,
JO

You can also add projects to the solution by using the File-->Add-->New Project... menu item in VS 2008 rather than using the Solution Explorer.
