Unable to open Web project projectname. The Web projectname located on server http://localhost does not exist.
What would you like to do?
Retry using a different file share path
Try to open the project with FrontPage Server Extensions
However, if you try to directly open the Web project file (.csproj or .vbproj) instead of the solution file, you receive the following error message:
- In Internet Services Manager, create a virtual directory (named "Test," for example). This virtual directory must point to the folder that contains the application content, including the project file.
For more information, see the "References" section of this article.
- Open the WebInfo file (Projectname.vbproj.webinfo or Projectname.csproj.webinfo) with any text editor, such as Notepad. The WebInfo file is part of the application content.
- Make the URLPath attribute the location of the project file (for example, http://localhost/Test/test.vbproj or http://localhost/Test/test.csproj).
- Save the WebInfo file.
- Use Visual Studio .NET to open the project file (.csproj or .vbproj), and then save the new solution.
