Changing Orchard.sln name to custom name in Visual Studio

I have been trying to follow the article on creating a content part http://docs.orchardproject.net/Documentation/Writing-a-content-part but have not been able to see the prompt that is supposed to appear in Visual Studio.

I determined that this is because I renamed my solution to a diffenent name. ( I do this so that I can easily find my different orchard solutions by searching for a particular .sln file.) But, if I leave the solution file named Orchard.sln then I see the prompt and all is well. Is this supposed to be how it works?

I just tried this with the 1.3.10 version and that's what I see. I'm thinking this is what has been causing me so many other problems when trying to create new modules using codegen and Vs2010.

Thanks,
Bob

Mmmh, no. The prompt is not appearing in VS. It's a separate exe under visual studio tools.
