    So bit the bullet and installed vs2010 finally. However, when loading an existing vs2008 project, I am getting this error: "The project type is not supported by this installation."

    the only thing special about this project is that it's a  "web application projects" type.

    what I've tried so far are these steps, but none of these solve my problem:

    (1) run "devenv /setup"
    (2) regsvr32.exe "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ProjectAggregator.dll"
