How to fix "The solution does not have a solution file" in 6.1


I am seeing the error "Could not build the projects.  Tests will not be run.  The solution does not have a solution file."
Which was reported in ticket

Unfortunately I cannot upgrade to 7.0 to get this bug fix.  Can anyone offer me a way to fix this is 6.1?  This only happens to this solution so I am assuming there is something unique about this one solution that I may be able to change in order to correct this.

Hi Collin,

unfortunately, this fix is available in version 7.0. It's impossible to backport it to previous version due to complexity of changes made inbetween.
Please, try free 30 day trial of ReSharper 7 to make sure it works for you.

Hi Victor,

What I meant was that I only see it in a single solution, and only on one computer.  I was wondering if you (or anyone) could provide insight as to the cause so that I can fix my solution file to not be affected by this bug, until such a time as I can upgrade to 7.0.

I'm using ReSharper 7.1 and have exactly the same problem: "Could not build the projects. Tests will not be run." error message and ReSharper refusal to execute unit tests.
Should I upgrade to 8.1 now?
