SP Designer 2007: An annoying error: Solved!
I recieved this weird error in SharePoint Designer.
Cannot perform this operation. The file is no longer checked out or has been deleted.
After googling it I found some solutions.
but all were in mention to the web cache.
Locate the WebsiteCache directory below and delete it:
Windows 2003/XP: %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\WebsiteCache
This didn’t work for me. After trying a million things I found out that you can’t access your site from anything but the host name. For me I use an external version of SharePoint designer accessing my SharePoint VM.
So instead of using an IP I ended up making an entry in my host file
Simple solution? Yes. but took me a while and wanted to share my findings.
