The item $/... does not exist at the specified version, or you do not have permission to access it.

Created some new views, and most of them worked OK, except one.

The item $/... does not exist at the specified version, or you do not have permission to access it.

Somehow the Team Foundation Server (TFS) thought the file already existed, even though I was trying to add it to source control for the first time.

How to solve.

  1. Copy and paste the text of the file to notepad
  2. Delete the file in Solution Explorer (this causes a check-out of the .csproj file)
  3. Check-in (this adds the "delete" to TFS).
  4. Now, in Solution Explorer, add the view (empty, without model)
  5. Note that there is now a [+] icon by the view in Solution Explorer
  6. Paste in the text from Notepad
  7. Save
  8. Right click the project (not just the added file) and check in. There should be 2 files in the changeset, the view and the .csproj.
