I just installed a team suite on my new vista box and i tried to open an MVC app I've been working on.
All the solution projects open up expect for the Web project which throws the warning
"The project type is not supported by this installation".
how do i fix this?

Visual Studio comes in different versions. I don't mean VS 2003 or VS 2005, I mean Standard Edition, Professional Edition, etc. Each edition supports different types of projects (with the pricier versions supporting additional types.

What version of mvc do you have installed and what version of mvc was your project created with? It sounds like you possibly created a project with the december ctp and then opened it after installing mvc preview 2. Between these releases the mvc project
type guid changed.
To make the project features to function as expected in Preview 2, open the MVC project file (.csproj/.vbproj) of the project you created using MVC Preview 1. Look for 'ProjectTypeGuids'... You will find the below piece of code...
Replace the above with:
When you reload/reopen your project your MVC Preview 2 functionality will be available in the projects you created MVC Preview 1. Here is a link to the readme as well:

Thanks, I think that would've worked too. I should've done what you suggested and diff'd the type guids to see, then replace it with the new one.
drag n drop seemed faster at the time
