Visual Studio solution files backward compatible?

Last week a colleague asked me if it was possible to open a Visual Studio 2012 solution file in Visual Studio 2010?

The answer is  “it depends’' Glimlach:

Starting from VS 2010 SP1 you can switch between Visual Studio versions without having to go through the annoying conversion/migration process. However this is only true if you are using a compatible framework version and that all the project types in your solution are supported.
