Can't open its own created solution files. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My new Visual Studio installation is sick.  It cannot open ANY solution file, including one that it has just created.  In every case it says, "The selected file is not a valid Visual Studio solution file."

    I can still get work done because I can open .vcproj files just fine.  But I need this fixed, because there are some complex solution files I really need to use.  What to do, where to look?

    Top of a sample .sln file:
    Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 9.00
    # Visual Studio 2005

  • Although I have not seen this problem discussed anywhere on the Web, I have found the solution: Service Pack 1 for VS 2005.  Installed it, the problem just went away.
