Hi to all experts,

After reading some posts, it seams that it is possible to use a VS2005 project in vs2008.
The only think that must be saved is the SLN file wich is different from both version.

If have tested it, but it seems that the VCPROJ file is always modified and can not be used any more after conversion in VS2005.

But in all posts that I have read, it would be possible.
Difference between VS2005 & VS2008 SLN files :
     Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 9.00
     # Visual Studio 2005
     Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00
     # Visual Studio 2008
Difference between VS2005 & VS2008 VCPROJ files :
