Solution with Multiple Projects in Visual Web Developer 2010 (VWD)

I use Visual Studio 2010 at work and Visual Web Developer 2010 at home. One feature of VS2010 that is missing from VWD2010 is the ability to create a solution with multiple projects.
I use Visual Studio 2010 at work and Visual Web Developer 2010 at home. One feature of VS2010 that is missing from VWD2010 is the ability to create a solution with multiple projects.

However, if a solution with multiple projects create in VS2010 is opened in VWD2010 it seems to work fine and you can even add and remove projects as you like.

Solution1.slnSo I have created a solution folder which I (and you if you download the attached file) can use to develop this type of solution in VWD2010.

Using the attached file:

* The file has a two projects, a website (Website1) and a class library (ClassLibrary1). They are in folders with the same names. If you want to rename the projects and folders you will need to change the proprties of each project, rename the folder and manually edit the solution file (.sln).

* It is simpler to just add new projects and delete the ones that I have included.

* Warning: If you delete a project leaving only one project then you will not be able to add any more projects in VWD2010.
