Greatly appreciate you doing this. I just installed it and it seems to be running fine. However, when I try to open the project using Rainbow.duemetri.sln, I get a Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 error message:
The project file Rainbow.duemetri.sln cannot be opened. The project type is not supported by this installation.

Great news! But I also receive the same error message as Barry:
The project type is not supported by this installation.
Would be great to have Rainbow up and running in Visual Studio 2005.

I also get the same error!

I tried to just open the project-file but still get this message:
"The project file 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\rainbow\Rainbow.duemetri.net.csproj' cannot be opened.
The project type is not supported by this installation."
As can be seen, the whole solution is in the rainbow catalog under wwwroot. I dont think that should stop it from being opened by Visual Studio 2005?
I would like to think that there are many people around that is looking for a good alternative to DNN so hopefully we could make the Rainbow project up and running in VS 2005 soon.
Regards Fred Petter.

...The answer to your question is that you can open the project file in vs2005, but not the solution file. I'm not clear why this is. But, it does open in vs2005 and you can compile it with no errors (but many warnings).

No, I'm using VS2005 Standard Edition. Does it have to be professional edition in order to work? It's NOT VWD. I downloaded the .rar file again from the link above just to make sure I have the latest one - still 2/2/2006, but I downloaded it again and
unzipped the contents again, overwriting the earlier folder. This time, it configured the Rainbow2006Release folder as a virtual directory, which it hadn't before. So, I tried double clicking the solution file again (Rainbow.duemetri.sln) from explorer.
Still, it opens VS2005 with the conversion wizard and states that "the solution or project you are opening" must be converted.
Has anyone had luck with this yet? I tried to follow all the above steps carefully. Any more ideas, Eric?

Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!! It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, here's what I did. Hopefully it will help others out on this forum who might have been as frustrated as I was. I guess previously I had downloaded a different zip file and tried to extract that. It made a folder called Rainbow2006Release when unzipped.
That doesn't work. If this is the folder that was created when you extracted the file, download the .rar file and extract that.
The .rar file needs a different extractor to unzip - it doesn't use WinZip. Another hurdle, besides having the new project type installed for VS2005. I downloaded a free trial of WinRAR. Once you have a program that will extract .rar files, use it to
extract the Rainbow.Portal.2.0.rar file. I opened the .rar file in WinRAR and selected the Rainbow.2.0 folder (there are two folders, one with a ".." as the folder name and this one). Select that folder and extract it to the wwwroot folder on your system
and it will create a folder called Rainbow.2.0.
Now, here's another step. *Make sure this Rainbow.2.0 folder is configured as an IIS virtual directory!* Also, make sure it's set up as a 2.0 application.
After all that, I was able to double click the Rainbow.duemetri.suo file and it opened in VS2005 without a problem. Hope this helps! Now, on to figure out Rainbow!!!
