Cannot find the dependency '<merge module>' of '<merge module>'

The deployment project cannot be built because a dependent merge module for the referenced merge module cannot be found. The merge module may have been moved or deleted.

To correct this error

If the merge module has been moved to a different folder:

  1. Determine the new location of the merge module.
  2. Select the solution node in Solution Explorer. On the Project menu, choose Properties.
  3. In the Solution Property Pages dialog box, choose Debug Source Files under Common Properties.
  4. In the Search these paths for source files list, add the full path to the new location of the merge module.

If the merge module has been deleted:

  • Replace the missing merge module.
