.rptproj is not installed.

Using SQL v2K, reporting services, visual studio 2005, version 8.0.50727.42
I am an RS newbie, I had created a project, nothing crazy, it worked quite fine. Now, however, when I login to VS in an attempt to access the project, I receive this error msg:
The application for project 'D:\Projects\.......\Project Name.rptproj' is not installed.
Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed.
I tried a ton of different things, nothing worked, ultimately I uninstalled and reinstalled VS. After doing so, I attempt to access the project and it fails w/the same error.
One of my associates indicated he'd seen similar issues with VS before, but his only resolve was to delete and recreate the project from scratch.
Any ideas? Do I need to remove/recreate the project?
