2003 C#.net -> 2005 C#.net


I am not by any means a C# programmer, so I am hoping you can help me? I have a program written in 2003 C#.net and am wondering why I can not open it in 2005? Any suggestions? I would think that I could open it and use new references that I need for 2005 but I can not even open the file in 2005, should I be able to?

Thanks so much!! Vicky

RE: 2003 C#.net -> 2005 C#.net

You should be able to open it. What type of file are you trying to open? .cs? .sln? .csproj?

It may asked you to upgrade the project for VS 2005 to open it, but is should allow you to open it. (if so, just walk through the wizard)
