VS2003 ASP.NET solution conversion to VS2005 ASP.NET

I've got an ASP.NET solution with one web project and 4 class libraries that
was developed using VS2005 Enterprise Edition.

When I open the solution in VS2005 Professional Edition, it starts the
conversion wizard and only attempts to convert my web project, ignoring my
class library projects.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thanks!

Well, the first question I'd ask is whether you've tried running it. It may
very well be that everything converted fine, which is what one would expect.
Alternatively,
you could remove the class library projects from the solution temporarily
and then attempt to add them back in after you have a 2005 solution.

I figured out what is causing the problem.

If I open VS2005, click on Open Web Site, and select Local IIS, it goes to
C:\Inetput\wwwroot\MyWebApp and finds MyWebApp.vbproj, NOT the solution file.
The solution file lives in C:\Projects\MySolution. Also in that directory are
the .vbproj and .csproj files for the 4 class libraries.

Once I figured out this is what was happening, I double-clicked on
MyComputer and navigated to C:\Projects\MySolution\MyWebApp.sln. I
right-clicked on the .sln file, clicked on Open With, navigated to C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE, and selected devenv.exe.

VS2005 opened the solution and ran the converter on all the projects.

Now I just have to correct my conversion problems.

Thanks for your help,
