VB.NET 2008   Can't restart a VB.NET app

I screwed up!  On the START page under Recent Projects I deleted an unused project.  In doing so I also deleted an existing project that I desperately need, named CapexEval.  (I could explain further how this accidentally happened but I suspect that does not matter one bit.  The fact is that CapexEval no longer exists in the Recent Projects list and I need it to be there and for it to show up for further programming edits.)

Now, I am not altogether vapid; I just make the occasional mistake.  I DO HAVE A BACKUP of the project I need.  

I have copied the backup into my Visual Studio Projects folder.  However, I have been unable to load CapexEval onto the START page's Recent Projects.  I have tried various tactics but they do not work to load the program in any way.  I still need to add more programming to this app.

The .sln file displays the data shown in the attachment shown below.

Perhaps you have a solution to my baffling situation.

If you open it normally (i.e. through File > Open) it should then appear on the recent projects list. I don't think there is a way to force an item onto there manually without tweaking the registry.

Carl,

I have attempted to do this several times to no avail.  The system responds that it cannot locate the file.  I attempted to open the .sln file.

Open the proj file rather than the solution.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Actually I have tried to open just about every file that appears to have a chance - but none of them work.  I receive various messages that essentially say, cannot open or cannot be found, etc.

Can you post the exact message you get when you try to open the Proj file? It is probably missing a file that it being referenced.

Carl,

I would play with the Registry but I have never done anything with it in about 10 years - and I have never been sure I did it right then.

You could create a new solution called CapexEval_2.  Add the existing items (forms, modules, etc.) from CapexEval to it.  This should be a fairly quick step.  Once it opens correctly, rename it to CapexEval.  Then when you open it, it will be in your recent files list as carl_tawn says.  (I have done the same thing, ugh...)
