ErrorCS2015: Source file 'TreehouseDefense.cs' is a binary file and not a text file.

I don't understand what this means or how to fix it. Can someone please help?

I don't know where it might have come from, but "TreehouseDefense.cs" is not part of this project and can be deleted. That should stop the error.

While you're at it, "Game.exe" is also not part of this project and can be deleted (but it's not as likely to cause trouble).

Yes I was typing in the TreehouseDefense.cs instead of TreehouseDefense.exe! Thanks!
