    VS2012 on another pc .. check later

  2. Denis Kuzmin repo owner

    with VS2012 Pro 11.0.61030.00 Update 4 also all works -_-

    so, problem should be here 5aeebb7 - this part changed after the bug #3 but i can't reproduce your problem :(

    • changed status to open

    Thanks for details,

    I updated VS2013 (VS2013 Pro 12.0.21005.1 -> Version 12.0.30501.00 Update 2) and still can't reproduce this problem :(

    So., i released debug version - with trivial fix and markers... try it and report me with attached log-events from the Output - Solution Build-Events if problem not resolved

  6. Denis Kuzmin repo owner

    thanks :) now i can see what's the problem.. I think <_<

    also interesting., i can't see problem #3 on VS2013 for you - currently called _reloadProjectCollection() if problem exist :)

    wait for a new debug version for test

  7. Eugen Richter

    Thanks. This version works well.

    this problem has resolved with commit 34abfee73f1f

    Also disabled the flag optimisation of reload projects because we need a more test with the bug #508628 on the different VS. Somewhere works somewhere not -_-

    new patch release is coming soon on the gallery page
