Lots of small solutions

In my new job the dev team have created lots of small solutions. Quite often containing only one project. So I find myself hitting the boundaries while browsing code. Is there any way to extend the browsing capabilities outside the currently loaded solution?

Thanks

Hello,

Can't you just use one solution and add all these little projects to it ?

That was my first thought but some are 2003, some 2005, some 2008 and some 2010

I was hoping I could point to some other source directories or get the metadata to pull in the code

Can't you upgrade them to the latest version ? just trying to help here. ;)

Other than that, if I'm not mistaken you want to browse through the code of another project that may or may not be loaded, correct ? you can try this little extension or Mindscape.

Hello Paul
     With ReSharper you should be able to navigate to files from other solutions (when performing a Go To Declaration action for instance), but there's no way to find usages, perform refactoring or navigate to types or symbols across multiple solutions. Thank you!
