Previous versions (using vb.net) I have selected new-project and chosen a new windows project.
As a result my top level would be a solution and I could add projects to it.
I have just installed vs2008 and again went file - new project. (c#)
my top level is a csproj file. If I choose add there is no option to add a project to my (non existant) solution.
What happend? What am I missing? No .sln file either in solution explorer or in windows explorer.

in VS 2005 and 2008 you can work on single projects too without adding solutions and if you havent created a solution it will not be visible and also in VS 2005 and VS 2008 if the solution is not shown by default
go to Tools - > options -> projects and solutions
check the check box for always show solution
