Open the .csproj-file or .sln file. You can do this without harm it is not going to convert the project

I solved the problem by installing VisualStudioCommunity, the new one, but I'm interested purely out of curiosity because when I start to open .sln file in Visual studio express It cannot be opened, it starts opening in the program and then program reports that file is unloaded because file is incompatible.

That is maybe because it is Visual Studio Express , or because file was made for 64bit processor, I don't know. First , program show dialog where was writen there is incompabilty of .net framework. Than I update .net framework and then program opened file, but "file is not loaded". Then I installed Community , the latest, on that same computer , and open same file correctly.

hhmm strange. I do this occasionly when I have to work on another machine which still has 2017 on it. With no problem. Are you sure all files used are in the right place ?
