The parent file, 'file1', for file 'file2' cannot be found in the project file 

The project system cannot find a node corresponding to a file.

Dependent files are persisted in the project file by adding a DependentUpon attribute to the <File> node. For example:

    RelPath = "Form1.resx"
    SubType = "Code"
    BuildAction = "EmbeddedResource"

This will make Form1.resx appear below Form1.vb in the project hierarchy.

This error is most likely caused by editing the project file by hand.

To correct this error

  • Edit and update the project file.

    The affected files will be added to the project, however, the dependency will not be preserved.
