Cannot Edit or Add Path to Reference File
In the C# Visual Studio 2010 project I am working on, I cannot edit or add a path to a referece file. I have inherited a project at work. When I open the project and go to the references scetion in the Visual Studio 2010 IDE there are some little yellow warning signs showing that there is something amiss with the reference listed there.

But when I click on the item and look at the missing path, I find that the name "Path" is in grey suggesting that I cannot edit it and, sure enough, I cannot add the path name to the adjoining field. What causes this? I have the solution file and the project file checked out in edit mode.

When I open the project file, the error list also gives the warnings for each missing reference:
"The reference component '(the file name)' cound not be found"

Well, I know where they are but editing the path to point there is the problem.

Try deleting the reference and adding it again?
