I installed Visual Web Developer and Microsoft Visual C# 2005 Express Edition. I am trying to run the Beer House starter website. But when I click the .sln file and try to open it with Visual Web Developer or Visual C# 2005 I get the error "Make sure the
application for the project type (.csproj) is installed. ,Make sure the application for the project type (.wdproj) is installed,Make sure the application for the project type (.vdproj) is installed. How do I fix this error and run this website?

You don't need Visual C# 2005 to run this, in fact, you can't run it in Visual C# 2005 at all. You should read the ReadMe file for more information about what you need to run this. It should run in Visual Web Developer 2005 just fine.
The .vdproj error occurs because you attempted to open it in Visual C# 2005.
The .wdproj error occurs if you don't have Web Deployment projects installed. This error can be safely ignored -- the site will still run. You just won't be able to deploy it with a Web Deployment project, but you can still XCopy it of course.
The .csproj error occurs because there is a C# project in the solution that helps with logging deleted records. I don't think VWD 2005 can handle C# projects, but I know VWD 2008 can. Either open this in VWD 2008, or simply copy the assembly from the C#
project over into the web site's bin folder, and then delete the project.
