Hello,

I'm looking at a project created with VS 2008, but some reason it doesn't have the .sln file, How do I create the .sln file?

Thanks,

Victor

A solution (.sln) is a group of projects. If you application is working stand alone, with no source code from other projects, you do not need the .sln.

If you add a second project to your application (File...Add...Existing project), the .sln will be automatically created.

If it has .vbproj file open it, save the project at some location and sln will be created there.
