    This bug has been annoying me for a while now.

    VS2003, I create a new solution and go: Add > Project From Web, since it's a ASP.NET Web Project. So I type in: "http://proj/SiteName/W3b.Sites.SiteName.vbproj", but VS ignores this and opens up the "Browse for Project" dialog.

    ...so I go along with this and choose the Project file from the mapped network drive (Z:\proj\SiteName), but then it tells me:

    ---------------------------
    Microsoft Development Environment
    ---------------------------
    The project you are trying to open is a Web project. You need to open it by specifying its URL path.
    ---------------------------
    OK   Help  
    ---------------------------


    Argh!

    ...but it won't let me use the URL path to the project file!
