why only show the project, not the solution in solution explorer - VS2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I created some projects before I upgrade my VS2008. But after upgrade, when I open the solution file, in solution explorer window, only the project, not the solution shows up if the solution only has one project. Why? I need see the solution in order to add some other projects in.

  • Hi Hello2008,


    Thanks for yout post.

    I can imagine two possibilities,

    1. the solution is not created after converting your 2008 project, you need to save it to create the solution.

    2. the solution node is hide in your IDE, you can show it up by

    Tools->Options->Project and Solution->General, and check the "Always show solution" box.

    The second one is more like your issue.

    Hope my reply helps.
