Visual-studio – How to open a copied project in Visual Studio

visual-studio

I have copied a whole project onto my PC, both into My Documents/Visual Studio and into inetpub/wwwroot, but when I try to open the project in Visual Studio, it tries to open just 1 file .vssproj and gives me error messages, like : "The project file cannot be loaded. The application for project … is not installed.". What am I doing wrong?

I had this same exact error when double-clicking on the file as opposed to going to VS and using its menu to open it. It seems a problem with file associations.
