  • Try:

    1. Closing and re-opening the file
    2. Closing and re-opening the solution
    3. Closing and re-opening VS (I'm sure you've done all three of those already)
    4. Re-booting the system
    5. Repairing VS

    I've seen this error and variations on it fairly frequently (about once a fortnight) and it usually requires repairing VS, but the other things are quick, so I always try them first. (Hope springs eternal.)
