Visual Studio 2013 | HRESULT 0x80070002 exception

Scenario

A brand new installation of Visual Studio 2013

You are trying to create a new project/solution and immediately after choosing the type of the application (eg: Single page web application) an error raised saying referenced file cannot be found, followed by the error code HRESULT 0x80070002

Solution

Go to http://docs.nuget.org/consume/installing-nugget

Select the build of your Visual Studio NuGet client and move to the download page

Download the package (After closing down the Visual Studio, if yet open) and install the package

Restart Visual Studio and the error must have been gone by now.

Happy Programming guys ;)
