I setup orchard with webmatrix, and added a load of content to the site.

I now realised that actually I don't want to use webmatrix and would rather be able to open the project using Visual Studio.

How can I export the project so I can use visual studio and IIS as usual?

Or alternatively can I get the source for Orchard and simply use the same database again so I don't lose all the content and modules I have already configured?

If you are planning to do development, I would advise you to download the Source package and copy over any custom and 3rd party modules and themes and App_Data.

Alternatively, you can simply open your current work with Visual Studio. Open it as a Web Site.
