Unable to open MVC project in Visual Studio 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I started working on an Asp.net MVC website using Visual Web Developer Express 2008 a while ago. Just recently, I managed to get my hands on a copy of Visual Studio 2008 Professional (through DreamSpark ). I installed the Service Pack, and also the MVC2 files for Visual Studio.

    However, now I can't open my project anymore. When I try to open the solution in Visual Studio, it tells me that the project type is not supported. Does this mean that I have to resort to using VWD Express again? Is there perhaps some way that I can edit the project file so that it will load and compile correctly?

    Note: I installed MVC2 through the Web Platform Installer, and it says that it installed successfully. However, I notice that MVC references in my unit-test project don't seem to be resolved either - is this perhaps because MVC2 isn't actually installed properly?

  • Hello,

    I think I'd ask in the ASP.Net MVC forum on forums.asp.net.

  • Hi Yichun,

    I was of the understanding that this would be related to Visual Studio.  ASP.Net is working fine on my computer (I can use it fine through Visual Web Developer Express), but Visual Studio doesn't seem to have installed correctly, or is missing some components.
