Dropthing 2.0 release: can't open project

description

I am running VS2008 SP1 with Silverlight Tools 2 intalled and SQL 2005 Express. I am running on a Vista x64 machine. I downloaded Dropthings V2.0 from http://code.google.com/p/dropthings/downloads/list. Intersting the readme file still says Dropthings v.1.7.0. I followed the istructions, and all required software was installed. When I went to opent the solution, I get this error:
...\Dropthing Portal 2.02\Dropthing2.0.2\src\Dropthings.Test.csproj' cannot be opened.' The Project Type is not supported by this installation.
 
Once I dispmiss this error, it does open the solution, but it will not run, I get a bunch of errors including:
1) The type or namespace name 'Framework' does not exist in the namespace 'Dropthings.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
2) Metadata file 'C:\Users\Brian\Documents\ASP-Net\Dropthing Portal 2.02\Dropthings2.0.2\src\DashboardDataAccess\bin\Debug\Dropthings.DataAccess.dll' could not be found.
 
There are about 16 error similar to number 2. I follwed the instructions in the Readme file to a T. Is there other setup that I need to do to run this??

Remove the ProjectTypeGuids from the csproj file and it opens fine!
