Hello Experts,
I have a .NET project assigned.  When looked thru the folder I find that the csproj file is missing.  I see the sln file though.  Is there any way I can open the project?  Also how would I know which version of Visual Studio I should use to open it?  Please advise.  Thank you in advance.

Hi!

May be your project type is Website.
or better show all hidden file and check the content inside the .suo file if any

Also if possible share your .suo file

Thanks!

The sln file should have a couple of lines at the top indicating which file version and Visual Studio version, similar to the following.

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 11.00
# Visual Studio 2010

You could just try double-clicking on the sln file and see what opens.

As navneethegde said, it's possible it's a Website project, which would not have a project file.

navneethegde and CraigWagner, Thank you very much for your reply.  It is true, it is a Web project.  The sln file gives error when tried to open with double click.  I will post the error message soon.  Thank you again.
