What happens when you open the site directly in Visual Web Developer? That is, choose File | Open Web Site and then browse to the location where you extracted the files from the Source folder?
To fix the ambiguous error, you could try what Gixxer suggested. So, when you look at the code behind of each file that generates this error, you'll see something like this:
Partial Class _Default
Change that to:
Partial Class SomethingUnique_Default
where SomethingUnique refers to something unique, like Management for files in the management folder. Next, open up the markup portion of the associated file and change the following code in the page directive from this:
Again, SomethingUnique refers to the unique name you chose in the Inherits section earlier.
You may need to repeat this step for other files called Default.aspx.
Honestly, I don't know why and when this error shows up. I have seen it every now and then, pretty random. However, the steps described above should get rid of it for good.
Does this help?
Everyone is unique, except for me.
