Summary0012572: .sln file signature does not match Visual Studio 11
DescriptionSolution files (.sln) generated by cmake -G "Visual Studio 11" command output .sln file signature (the first two lines) which does not match release of Visual Studio 11 (currently Developer Preview).

It leads to the problem with recognising those .sln files Windows Explorer and Visual Studio Version Selector.

The first two lines CMake generates are:

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 12.00
# Visual Studio 2011

but should be:

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 12.00
# Visual Studio 11

On double-click of such .sln file (with the incorrect signature), error message is displayed saying: "File version is not supported by the launcher" (see screenshot).

Windows Explorer also does not display correct Visual Studio 11 icon for .sln file, but displays "blank" VS icon without version number.

Here is the .sln file signature issue explained: [^]
