VS 2008 Possible fix to an annoying bug

“visual studio: an error was encountered while opening associated documents during the last time this solution was loaded”

I get this after opening some solutions – the first thing, it just crashes to desktop when opening the solution.  Then I reopen it, and get the message from above.

After doing some googling, it was suggested in a forum to try deleting the .suo (hidden file) from the solution (goto the file system and show hidden files and delete it).

The suo holds local VS settings and can become corrupted, which can lead to problems.

So…let’s hope this resolves this annoying problem!

(it appears to happen to me when I have silverlight projects in my solution)
