cannot open project file

Mar 30, 2010 at 11:44 PM


I'm getting an error opening the project file : MvcSiteMap.Web

"The project type is not supported by this installation"

I'm using VS 2008 with the MVC 2 framework installed. Any ideas? thanks

I think it might have something to do with the fact it was created using MVC1 and to port it to MVC2 requires some special steps.  You can't just load an MVC1 app into Visual Studio and have it automatically convert to MVC2 (even loading it into VS2010 doesn't work, I tried).  I saw somewhere (MSDN I think) that there's a tool you can use to convert an MVC1 app to an MVC2 app.
