There is an update for Visual Studio 2005 to support Web Application Projects available.

Download Visual Studio 2005 add-in

And also Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Projects

Re: The project type is not supported by this installation

You need to remove the ProjectType element that has a GUID - its usually the first entry under the first PropertyGroup.

Then you need to add these elements:

----------------
<ProductVersion>8.0.50727</ProductVersion>
<SchemaVersion>2.0</SchemaVersion>
----------------

just below the removed element.
Hope it helps!

Hi,

Have you given the proper path of the file, please check, then try to run it.

Also try to download the deven add-ons for Devenv - 2.3.1

Thanks
