Steps to reproduce:
1. Open XS and create a solution
2. Right click over solution name and select 'Add existing Projects' option.
3. Brose and select any invalid file. for ex image
'System.InvalidOperationException' shown on selecting invalid file for 'Add existing Projects'.
Note: It is working fine on MAC.
User should not be allowed to select invalid file while adding existing projects.
Error details: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/7ad2c246cb90f6a5236e
Regression status: REGRESSION It is working fine with stable XS 5.0 (build 878)
Xamarin Studio Version 5.1 (build 322)
Git revision: e79f17166d197fa4e7b2750c623d3eed3209aa98
Xamarin addins: b68a34ef2fc4c46b045dc38e26fb199bfe1b201d
Looks like the file type filter is not being applied in the file selector.
Fixed in master.
Now if select Add> Add Existing Project , then at Open dialog by default 'Project files' filter appears selected and is working fine.
However if we change it to 'All Files' and select any invalid file we are still getting same error. It occurs on both MAC and win.

Lluis, should we modify Add Existing Project so it doesn't throw but just say it's invalid?
We could show a better message.
I closed by mistake.
Not a major issue, to be fixed in 5.2
Fixed in 5.2
I have checked this issue with XS 5.2 (build 179) and this issue does not exist as shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/AJd7TGvs
Hence closing this issue.
