Visual Studio Troubles: The project file has been moved, renamed or is not on your computer

After doing a rename and merging a solution inside Visual Studio(one tip: never try to combine these two things at the same time), one project don’t want to load anymore. Instead I always got the following error:

“The project file has been moved, renamed or is not on your computer.”

I tried a lot of stuff but in the end the following solution worked:

  1. Close Visual Studio.
  2. Browse to the solution folder of the project which is giving you problems.
  3. Find the .suo file and delete it.
  4. Reopen your solution. Visual Studio will recreate the .suo file and everything worked.
