That's because you haven't unzipped the files. Windows Explorer lets you browse through the Zip file as if it were a directory structure but Visual Studio needs to create files to load and execute the project and it doesn't know how to do that inside the zipped package.

Unzip the project's files and you should have no problems.

Default Unable to open .sln in Visual C# Express

I had a similar problem. I unzipped the source code, and I can open the .cs files, but I can't open the .sln in VS. I get the mesage "project unloaded".

Thanks.

I don't know if I've seen that error message before.

Do you see all of the files including the subdirectory and its files? Which version of Visual Studio are you using?

Yes. I see all subfolders and files. I am using Visual C# 2010 Express.

Can you email me a screen shot at RodStephens@CSharpHelper.com?

Be sure you unzip the project somewhere you have read and write permission. Visual Studio can't manage the project unless it can write more files into the same area.

Can you use the File > Open Project menu command to open the .sln file?

Can you open the .csproj file? (That's the project file. The solution could contain more than the solution file but unless you're working on multiple projects in one solution this would be okay.)

The only other thing I can think of is that a file downloaded from the internet should be marked as from the internet zone. When you try to unzip it, it should ask if you want to trust the file. Does it do that?

Sorry I can't figure out what's wrong. I haven't seen this problem before and can't find any posts on it.
