Visual Studio opens DTSX files in XML view only

Last Modified: 2016-02-13
Environment is Visual Studio 2008

When I open a Solution that contains a group of SSIS packages (DTSX files), they are opening in XML view only.  However, if I open this same solution and files from another machine, I get the full designer.

Can anyone clue me in on how to fix this?  I had this same issue with opening Typed Datasets a while back but and remember having to reset the environment, but don't remember how.
