[IronPython] Cannot compile IronPythonTools

You'll need to install the VS SDK (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=47305cf4-2bea-43c0-91cd-1b853602dcc5&displaylang=en) in addition to Visual Studio.

The reason for that is because we use the SDK's project types to get things like a good debugging experience in the experimental hive (you can set IronPythonTools as your setup project and have it launch VS with F5 under the experimental hive.  When building the extension automatically gets deployed to the experimental hive).

Subject: [IronPython] Cannot compile IronPythonTools

Hi All,

I downloaded the latest code from the git repository and tried to compile IronPythonTools.sln but I got the following error:

D:\Downloads\Development\IronPython\IronPythonSourceCode\Tools\IronStudio\IronPythonTools\IronPythonTools.csproj : error  : The project file 'D:\Downloads\Development\IronPython\IronPythonSourceCode\Tools\IronStudio\IronPythonTools\IronPythonTools.csproj' cannot be opened.

The project type is not supported by this installation.

D:\Downloads\Development\IronPython\IronPythonSourceCode\Tools\IronStudio\IronStudio\IronStudio.csproj : error  : Unable to read the project file 'IronStudio.csproj'.
D:\Downloads\Development\IronPython\IronPythonSourceCode\Tools\IronStudio\IronStudio\IronStudio.csproj(369,3): The imported project "C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v10.0\VSSDK\Microsoft.VsSDK.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.

Am I missing a component from VS 2010? Thanks for any help you can give.
