I am in the process of moving my development from 32 bit to 64 bit enviroment. My machine is 64 bit, XP. The installation of 2.0 went withougt problem. However, when I tried to open the solution file under src sub directories, I got the following error: "The selected file is a Visual Studio solution file, but was created by a newer version of Visual Studio and cannot be opened". Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Other than the obvious, trying to open it with VS2003 when it was built using VS2005, is the only reason I could see for the error.

Some of the solution files in the CTP have their encoding messed up. Opening them from within Visual Studio 2005 should work as expected. Saving them and reopening them (by double clicking the .sln file) should also work.

This should b fixed before RTW.
