(suo) file extension and how it gets created

vb/net 2003
I have had a .net program for almost a year.

When trying to install yesterday..

I get a
"can't create <file>.suo

I have no idea how this file was created.
Why would it cause problems all of a sudden.?

Thanks

suo files are normally the user settings for your solution when you open it in Visual Studio (startup project, ...)

do you have write access to the folder containing your solution (.sln)?
