Solution file error MSB5009: Error parsing the nested project section in solution file.

After merging the solution file while getting the latest version and checking back in, the TFS automatic build triggered by the check-in failed.

The solution was quite simple:

  1. I added a dummy file to the solution and checked-in the solution with the new dummy file.
  2. I had a successful automatic build.
  3. I removed the dummy file and checked-in again the solution without the dummy file.
  4. I had another successful automatic build.

I hope this will help others too!
