That's not "view code". That's what's called a "hex dump" of some file and it's apparently empty.

You haven't posted any code at all, nor a real error message. There is a lot more to the error in the designer than just "Unable to open form designer". Without that additional data, there is nothing anyone can tell you that's going to be helpful.

It looks like you ran into a weird bug in Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. See if you can open the files in Notepad. If the content is still there, copy the files off to a safe location.

Copy your entire Solution folder to a safe location before proceeding!

Go back into your project and delete the affected files from it. Then try to re-add the files to the project, copying the code from the files you backed up.
