Unable to read project file 'EdModules.vbproj'

I'm getting the following error:

"Unable to read the project file 'NurseEducationModules.vbproj'.  The file 'c:\inetpub\wwwroot\NurseEducationModules\NurseEducationModules.vbproj' is not a valid project file.  Error on line 1. Expected '<' but found 'null character'."

I checked some other wwwroot project folders and they don't have a file with simply a .vbproj extension... vbproj.webinfo, yes, but not the former.  There IS a 'Visual Basic .NET project' file, but it doesn't have a vbproj extension to the file name.

Thanks for any help-

What version of Visual Studio are you using?  What version of Visual Studio created these projects?  This error is typical of an older version of VS trying to open a project created in a newer version of VS (if you try to open a project created in an older version into a newer version of VS, you'll get a prompt asking if you want to upgrade the project or cancel opening the project).
