The project file ‘ ‘ has been renamed or is no longer in the solution.

After an upgrade to Visual Studio 2012, a user reported this error while trying to build a project:

The project file ‘ ‘ has been renamed or is no longer in the solution.

It turns out VS2012 is a little more strict about missing references. Go through and clean them up and the build will work.

There was a forum note on MSDN as well.
