No unlock solution or assign project responsibilities

I am using Visual Studio 2008 Version 9.0.30729.1 SP with the .NET Framework Version 3.5 SP1.

I have the Service Factory Feb 2008 release installed.

I can create a solution and run the recipe to Add WCF Implementation Projects.

I wanted to delete some of the projects (DataAccess, BusinessEntities, BusinessLogic) and reassign the responsibilities to say the ServiceImplementation.

I can delete projects; however, I do not see any options to Unlock the solution and/or assign project roles/responsibilities.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

You have two options to reassign the projects roles and is basically updating the project mapping table file.
1) Update the PMT (project mapping table) using the recipe "Populate Project Mapping Table" right cliking on the root solution folder of your services structure and that recipe will populate the PMT with all the projects within that node using a simple heuristic for roles based on project name prefixes.
2) Update the PMT by hand so you can add new project elements by getting the project GUID from each project file and settng the role with the intellisense provided by the PMT schema.
