Visual Studio has two formats for web sites The normal web site. This
format does not work well with MD as as you say it does not have
designer files as the controls are dynamically created at runtime and
stored in C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary
However a VS service pack introduced a "web application" project type
that uses designer files instead of files in
Files/WebSiteName. This format works great with MD as the website
also has a project file unlike the web site format.
It not a bad job to convert a VS web site to a web application. Just
add a new web application project to your solution and then add all of
the file in your website to the new project. They will still be
missing the .designer files so you need to right click on the each
file or directory and select convert to web application. This will
create your designer files.
MD will then happy open the solution and compile.

PS How do I reply to a specific message??
