Problems loading solution (Kona.Web project actually)

description

I kept getting the following error when I opened the Solution or the Kona.Web project:
 
The project file 'C:...\Kona.Web\Kona.Web.csproj' cannot be opened.
 
The project type is not supported by this installation.
 
I looked everywhere, and tried everything suggested, but could not find a solution - finally, I just started messing around with the file on my own (using some of what I read and some of my intution), and finally found the solution.
 
In the file I changed:
 
<ProjectTypeGuids>{603c0e0b-db56-11dc-be95-000d561079b0};{349c5851-65df-11da-9384-00065b846f21};{fae04ec0-301f-11d3-bf4b-00c04f79efbc}</ProjectTypeGuids>
 
to:
 
<ProjectTypeGuids>{349c5851-65df-11da-9384-00065b846f21};{fae04ec0-301f-11d3-bf4b-00c04f79efbc}</ProjectTypeGuids>
 
AND deleted this:
 
<MvcBuildViews>false</MvcBuildViews>
<SccProjectName>
</SccProjectName>
<SccLocalPath>
</SccLocalPath>
<SccAuxPath>
</SccAuxPath>
<SccProvider>
</SccProvider>
 
note: all of this is within the <PropertyGroup> section of the file.
 
And, it works, site runs, and works as expected :-)
 
But this leaves me with a question, "have I broken anything in doing this?"
 
I hope this helps others before they pull their hair out or give up because, simply, this is a fantastic project! And thank you to all the contributors!
