Default Cant Find The Planet Wrox Project in source

Ok so it sounds like a nub question, but the source seems to be missing the sln and proj files needed in order to simply open in studio. I am not reading the whole book. I am just bouncing around in some of the later chapters. I was hoping to be able to simply navigate to the source for a given chapter and be able to open the project and complete the exercises. Also, I am using VS2010 Pro and dont have the original dvds. I am borrowing the book from a co-worker. Thoughts?

The reason you don't find those files is because the book actually takes you through creating a Web Site project NOT a Web Applications project, which contains a .proj file.

The first chapter explains this and will show you what you need to do to setup your environment to easily run the samples.

A web site project is much easier to work with, because all you need to do is create it then just copy the files to the location where you setup the web site project. It doesn't need a .proj file to know what files make up the project.

Chapter 2 is actually the chapter that talks about this, and the Try It Out that instructs you on creating and opening a web site project starts on page 37. You can just read this section then from there continue focusing on just the sections that you want.

Also on page xxxiii there are instructions on the structure of the downloaded source code is expected to be in for the exercises in the book. You don't have to follow it exactly, but it is only a page and a half and will give you a quick glimpse at how the site is organized.
