Hello,

A fellow developer has a "project" that he set up outside of VS.NET.  Now he wants to create a VS solution while maintaining his current folder structure.  I tried to create a new solution but it keeps wanting to create a new folder.  How do I create the solution and add the existing files and folders to it without having to move things around?  Isn't there a way to do this?

When you open VS.NET, click on File>New>Blank Solution a new project dialog will open up.

Here you can 'Browse' to the folder where your existing project lies... eg: c:\vb_prj
Your solution file will be created in the same folder... then you can add your existing project to the solution and delete the newly created blank project...
