Visual Studio only works when connected to my office's network.

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
Visual Studio 2012 projects won't load unless I am connected to the office network.  I get the following error when trying to open the project at home:  (load failed) - it shows in the solution explorer.  

I am running VS as admin.  I'm new to VS and don't know what could be the issue.  The project is located on my local drive.

Any help on solving this issue so that I can work from home would be greatly appreciated.

I'm working on a Dell Latitude running Windows 7.
