Default Chapter 3 Source Code and Visual Studio 2008

Hi All,

I installed Visual Studio 2008 Extensions for Windows Share Point Services 3.0 (VSeWSS version 1.2). When I tried to open the project for Chapter 3 (chpt3.sln) Visual Studio upgraded the project. The C# project (SelectSPData.csproj) was not upgraded and I found the following error in the upgrade log: "The project file 'C:\Documents and Settings\administrator.SHAREPOINT\My Documents\Pro SP2K7\chpt3\Cross-ListQueries\SelectSPData\SelectSPData.csproj' cannot be opened. The project type is not supported by this installation." Of course Visual Studio wouldn't open the project. The error in the Solution Explorer is: "The Project File cannot be loaded".

Poking around the SelectSPData.csproj file in plain text view I noticed that the build version seemed to be for Visual Studio 2003 (xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003"). The authors instructions in Chapter 2 for the development environment were for Visual Studio 2005. Did the author accidentally include older code for WSS 2.0 from the previous version of this book?

Has anyone else run into this issue? What do I need to do to open this project let alone compile it? (There don't seem to be any instructions on what to do with it.) Do I absolutely need to have VS2005? I would have thought using VS2008 would eliminate the need for installing .net framework 3.0 and VS2005 extensions for it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much in advance.
