System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException when opening a visual studio web project

I'm in the middle of installing everything to get my new laptop (still not working right) , and came across a problem where I couldn't open a particular web project in the solution.


First thing I did was opening the project file in notepad and grab the project type guid:

{349c5851-65df-11da-9384-00065b846f21} - Ah ha!  Web Application Project

There's a few things you need to open this project on Vista:

1. You'll need IIS with IE6 Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility


2. Run VS.NET as administrator

3. Find out the project's

Alternatively, you can install VS.NET 2008 SP1 and the messages will be a bit more friendlier.
