Asp.Net MVC project “The project type is not supported by this installation”

One of my team members experienced this issue and was trying all the tricks got from googling, but those are all did not helped him great. After some time, we got a clue from one of the tips and verified System.Web.Mvc version in the project file.

<Reference Include=”System.Web.Mvc, Version=,…>

We use VS.NET 2010. He had only System.Web.MVC 2.0 installed in his machine but the above entry was showing version 3.0. Then right away we installed MVC 3.0 and tried opening the solution. Wow…it’s worked like a charm.

Hence, if you see System.Web.Mvc Version=, make sure you have MVC 2.0 installed. Likewise if see Version=, make sure MVC 3.0 installed. That’s it  🙂
