Hello, I need to maintain a C#/asp.net project that was written a few years ago using Visual studio 2003. My problem is that I don't know how to open the project, because there is no solution ".sln" or project file ".proj"
Can someone tell me the steps I need to open this project?
Thank you, Ralph

Create a new blank solution in Visual Studio. Add a new project (web application project if it's a web app - do not use "web site"). Copy all of your C# files into the project directory in Windows Explorer. In Visual Studio, click the Show All Files
button at the top of Solution Explorer. You will see all the files you just copied in with white blank icons. Right click on a file (or select several files) and choose "Include in Project". Repeat until all files are included. Compile and fix any errors.
That should be it.
