    The project type is not supported by this installation

    I am trying to open some source code i got from the internet which is a VS 2005 Project Solution. When i try to open it in VS 2005 i get the error message - the project file C:\C#\NewSourcecode\VS2005\AvalonLife\AvalonLife.c sproj cannot be opened. the project type is not supported by this installation. Iv tried devenv and devenv/setup and that didnt help. iv also tried uninstalling and reinstalling. but this hasnt helped either. Can anyone help me pls? Thanx for ur help

    You are trying to open a C# project without C# installed.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    C:\C#\NewSourcecode\VS2005\AvalonLife\AvalonLife.c
    This looks like C to me and not C#. So it would make sense that the C# IDE wouldn't open it.

    C:\C#\NewSourcecode\VS2005\AvalonLife\AvalonLife.csproj
    Looks like a C# project to me.

    The space looks like a typo to me. Where else would the "sproj" come from?

    try opening your IDE first then opening the project through the file menu.
    If it needs any sort of conversion it should be handled by the IDE when you open the project.

    No, not if it is a language that is not installed, which is, or seems to be, the case here.
