CodePlex-DLR solution file doesn't work in Visual C# 2008 Express


I get all kinds of errors when opening the solution file in Visual C# 2008 Express. IronPython, IronRuby and Silverlight Dynamic Languages SDK solutions do not have this problem (last time I checked). Seems like several issues, the first one I hit is that it uses "folders" to group solutions, but it also seems many of the projects won't load even despite that, due to "unspecified error".
I'm using SVN to sync the latest sources. Not sure if there's any difference between syncing vs downloading the 0.9 release (I sure hope not).

As I try it now the only issue I'm seeing is the folders. When I remove them all, as in the attached solution, it works. The folders are definitely a nice thing to have for the full VS, so I'm proposing we include this separate solution for Express. It should be in the next source push later this week.

Aren't the folders just a warning? VSExpress should still load a sln that specifies folder, but just not show the folders.
