I just downloaded TheBeerHouse and while trying to open the solution file, I get this error "The project file 'c:\<some directory>\TheBeerHouse_MVC\TheBeerHouse\TheBeerHouse.csproj' cannont be opened. The Project type is not supported by this installation"


I have VS2008 Standard. Is this because project was created on Testing Edition of VS2008? How do I get it work on Standard?

Install the MVC Framework

Will the MVC 2 work? We are starting a new project, so I was hoping to use the latest.

You can try MVC 2, but it hasn't been tested yet because it is still the first preview release of 2.0.  So we will be unable to support you if you use 2.0.

I installed 1.0 and still same problem. Are you using Testing enabled edition of VS?
