Having trouble loading solution

Hi all

I just came across this project today and it looks amazing.  I downloaded the latest build of the code to have a look and have tried to open it up in Visual Studio 2008 but I think I must be having one of those days.  When I open up I get the following error displayed in a message box, You can only add project references to other Silverlight projects in the solution.  If I click through all of these messages then the solution open but only with the web projects loaded all of the Silverlight projects failed to load. 

I have all of the latest bits installed for both VS and Blend.  If anyone could offer any help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I just downloaded the latest build and opened it,
I get the usual msgbox about "Source Control" and click "OK"
then the next I click "OK" to say I want to work on it temp. copy, and the prject opens fine, no problems...
I have all the Web and Silverlight projects and files

Hi dotnetnoobie

Thanks for your reply, I have discovered the problem it was the Sourcegear Vault client I have in Visual Studio, it was trying to register the projects under source control and making a royal cock up of the job.  When I disabled the clients I was able to reload the projects successfully.
