How to add "compatible workspace files" to supported file types in Project/Solution open dialog RRS feed

  • Question

  • One version of Studio had solution file as *.abcsln and the next version of Studio has solution file extension as *.newsln

    How to show the old solution file extension abcsln in the open project/solution open dialog. The one similar to "Compatible workspace files" in Visual Studio 2010 which supports opening dsw file extensions.

    Any comments would be appreciated!!

    Thanks

  • Looks like it can be added through ProvideProjectFactory attribute classes constructor

    Set displayProjectFileExtensionResourceID as "Compatible Workspace Files (*.abcsln);*.abcsln"

    and possibleProjectExtensions as abcsln
