Project cannot be seen by solution or other projects
I am working on a pre existing solution and I need to add a project to this solution. The solution has a startup prj that has a TestHarness automation in it and it references a process prj, and this project refrences all other projects. The project that I am adding is bieng referenced by the process prj and will be called from it. The project I am adding will also have an activity that starts in the startup prj and has the started event in it to run some processes.
The problem I am runnning into is that the project I have added to the solution is not bieng registered by neither the projects nor the solution. The test harness does not show the project in the automations tab dropdown, and when I attempt to call it from the process prj the automations show up red when I drag and drop into the process automation, I have attached a picture of a sample automation from my prj brought into the process prj.
I have made sure that the reference is in the process prj and that it is managed in the imported projects popup. I have also attempted deleting the reference and rereferencing it and cleaning and rebuilding/building the project. I have also tried deleting the project and remaking it from the beggining.
Any input is greatly appreciated, thank you in advanced.
I want to also add that the solution is a local copy of TFS code that I created from a local mapping in TFS to my C drive. I coppied the local mapping and pasted it in the same folder so as to not mess with the TFS code. I have attached a picture of an error that i get when I attempt to run the process prj with an automation calling my created project.

The problem was that the project was not being registered by the solution and thus could not interact with the whole solution even after being referenced by another project within the solution. The solution to this problem was that the new project had to be included to the solution thus connecting it to the TFS code and adding a + icon in front of it. Once this was done and the icon appeared the project could interact with the rest of the solution without problem. The afore mentioned action was done by right clicking the project in question and clicking Add project to source control which will add the + in question.
