Academy 2 - github xaml files - plain text/can't open

I am attempting to use the github files that are a part of the first lesson in Academy 2. When I attempt to open the xaml files they open as Plain Text. I tried to download them and I receive the below message

For security reasons DTD is prohibited in this XML document. To enable DTD processing set the DtdProcessing property on XmlReaderSettings to Parse and pass the settings into XmlReader.Create method.

Is there a way I can get the xaml files to open correctly in Studio?

Hi Tom,

Did you download the archive, extract and then open the .xaml files?
