Mostly there in the title. I'd like to be able to drop a .sln file onto a blank VS 2010 surface -- with no solution open -- and have it open the solution. Is there any way to get VS to do this? All I get is the crossed-circle, indicating I can't.

This is a known bug in Visual Studio when running Visual Studio in Vista or later.

While the bug is reported for Visual Studio 2008, I believe that it is the same problem for 2010 as well.
