Anyone having a solution for “Microsoft Visual Studio” throwing “The operation could not be completed” when including a file in a PowerShell project?

The operation could not be completed.

I’ve got a bunch of PowerShell projects in a solution. In some of them, I can include new files, in others I get the below error.

The diff of a good/bad project is below as well.

When someone writes UTF-8 and UTF-16 strings to the same file in binary format without converting between them…

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/21

A while ago, I had to fix some stuff in an application that would write – using a binary mechanism – UTF-8 and UTF-16 strings (part of it XML in various flavours)  to the same byte stream without converting between the two encodings.
