I have an existing project folder, and I want to create a web project from the existing code folder. I've searched for solutions, and none seem to work or apply. I am using VS 2008 express and it doesn't have the option 'Project From Existing Code' under
File->New, and I can't seem to drag and drop anything into the solution explorer. The folder has a .sln and .suo file.
If the folder has a .sln and .suo file, you can double cilck .sln to open that solution. So I'm a little confused about your issue. If you want to build a new project in your folder, you can try to build the project and change the location to your folder.
Then Add-> Existing Items to your project so that you can add files into solution explorer.
Please show us more details about what you need , maybe you can show us some screenshots to describe.
If you have any udpates, please feel free to let me know.
