    Can't get anything to compile - please help

    I have a bunch of source code in c++ for several different things. All I need to do is compile the code so I can run the programs. Whenever I try to open the .sln file in Visual Studio to compile the code I get the following error:


    "The application for project 'project_directory\project_name.csproj' is not installed

    Make sure the application for the project type (.csproj) is installed"


    I have installed every windows dev tool you can download, Visual Basic 2005 express, Visual C# express, .NET Framework SDK v2.0 etc. Tried googling but didn't find a solution. I have no idea how to program, all I need to do is compile the source code.

    Does anyone know how to fix the above error message?? like I said I have no idea how to program so I just need a basic solution to compile. any help is really appreciated

    You are trying to compile C++ code as a C# program?
