I have the same problem too.

I have no problems in opening the solution in VS2008 and I'm not sure
why the icon is different.  You are correct in that the solution
contains a reference to the Lucene.Net project in the solution as
opposed to an assembly reference, and it will convert the Lucene.Net
project to a VS2008 project when it opens.

Sounds like a dumb question...

Windows Explorer does not recognise it as a VS solutions file. The
icon has the VS symbol (lower right) but not the version number
(usually top right).
Using File|Open in VS shows the Conversion wizard. The report at the
end says that it has converted Lucene.Net.csproj.

Opening the file in notepad shows that the Lucene project is included
in the solution. I'm pretty sure that including a VS05 project in a
VS08 solution is not possible (without conversion).

I'm assuming that this was done so that the Contrib.Net projects could
have a project reference. Until we can convert everything to a later
VS version we will have to change this to be a file reference instead
(to "..\..\src\Lucene.Net\bin\Debug\Lucene.Net.dll" and "Release" as

Or am I missing something?
