    I'm pretty sure its the same thing.  The solution is just a list of the files in the project.  You can view it by going to View->Solution Explorer.

    The main thing that you can add to a solution is... projects.  (You can actually add a variety of miscellanious files... icons, etc. but not code).  

    In other words Solutions contain projects and projects contain the code to produce an .exe or .dll file.
