Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 Error need help


If you get this error in Microsoft Visual Studio saying “One or more projects in the solution were not loaded correctly”, try doing these. First, load the solution in Microsoft Visual Studio. You will again receive that error. Just ignore the warning and click OK. In the Solution Explorer, you must see at least one project that wasn’t loaded. You will see the text “(unavailable)” next to it. Select that project.

In Properties window, you will see Unloaded Project Properties. There will be one property called “File path” which stores the path of the project. You need to change that. So, click on the path then click on the browse button (the one with “…”).

In case the browse button is grayed out and cannot be clicked, try deleting “.suo” files. These files will be recreated when you rebuild your project or solution so don’t worry. After that, the File dialog box will open. Here, find the project file “.csproj” then click Open. In the Solution Explorer, the project will still have the “(unavailable)” text.

There is still one more step that needs to be done. Right-click on the project then select Reload Project.

And that’s it. In case you receive an error saying that the referenced object does not exist, you need to update references. To do this, save the solution and then close it. After that, open the project again.
