Can't Open .vbp files in Visual Studio 2008

    Question

  • When I'm in VS2008, and I go to File > Open Project/Solution, it won't let me select a .vbp file type when I have it set to Objects of type "All Project Files (*.sln; *.dsw; *.vcw; *.rptproj; *.dwp" (it looks like it's cut off at that point).  Why can't I open a .vbp file with Visual Studio 2008?

    First of all, VS2003 - VS2008  wont open vbp project directly, any of the version will try to convert it to .net project using built-in conversion wizard.

    It works on my side, if you browse to the folder where the vb project (.vbp) stored,you should see the file, why not select VB Project Files(*.vbproj, *.vbp) as another option which will let you open it or go through File->Add->Existing Project.

  • What do you mean "won't let me"?  The full list of file types is displayed if you hover the mouse over the selection or use the arrow to open the list, but in any case VBP files are listed under VB Project Files.  Are the VBP files not displayed in the dialog when you select the option, or are they displayed but cannot be selected, or is there an error when you select them?
