At least one reference is missing the 'Name' attribute

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Each reference must have an associated Name property, as seen below:

<Reference
   Name = "System.XML"
   AssemblyName = "System.Xml"
/>

This error indicates that the Name property was not found for at least one reference.

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

To correct this error

  • Add the reference again.

    Any affected references will not be added to the project.
