Studio Version Selector Failure

The Questions

Are you clicking on your .sln file and nothing is happening?

Is it using the Visual Studio Version Selector (VSVS) to try to open your solution??

Do you only have ONE VERSION of visual studio on your machine???

Are you thinking “this VSVS is a piece of rubbish! How can it fail to find and use my ONE installed version!!”????

Well worry no more, the solution is simple (well, assuming you have the same problem as I did).

The Fix

  1. Open your .sln in wordpad
  2. Remove the blank line(s) from the top of the file
  3. Save
  4. Done!

It seems that VSVS is not capable of searching beyond the first line of the file for the version number. Is it just me or that lame?
