Visual Studio Error (Filetype .vb not recognized)

So, I am trying to open a form on my laptop from a project I created on my desktop and I get that error. I then installed VS 2010 on a brand new laptop and this opens fine. So I uninstalled VS from my other laptop, rebooted, reinstalled, and I am still getting this error. Is there another way to fix this?

Other projects open up just fine, too.

Did you do a complete install? Is VB installed as part of VS? Error message indicates that you do not have VB installed. Go to Help->About in VS and it would list the languages installed.

Your second link did the trick. Thank you so much.  Any idea what causes that because it's happening on more than one project. Some work, some don't. Very strange.  Thanks, again.
