If you cannot open your WP7 Project in Visual Studio 2012!

For the last month I've been swearing at the Visual Studio 2102 and WP8 teams...

The reason: because when I open my WindowsPhone 7 solutions, then it shows them as "unavailable" - which makes me very very sad - because I have to use VS2010:

However, last night @dsplaisted asked me if I'd tried right-clicking on them and reloading them.

It worked

I can now open my Windows Phone 7 projects in VS2012 :)

Apparently, the problem was:
  • I first tried to open this solution before the WP8 SDK was installed
  • Visual Studio 2012 didn't know about how to open these - so it marked them 'do not open' in my solution options.
I am sooooooooooooo glad I can open all my projects in VS2012 again!
