Project not checked out error when undoing checkouts after merge (VS2010)


Recommended Posts

I did a simple merge from another branch.

The merge involved some projects (.csproj files) that had not changed between branches, but they were included in the merge anyway.

I made a few changes and made sure everything compiled and hit check in (using the pending changes view in the VS2010 plugin). Check in suggested that i undo some checkouts for non changed stuff, which is quite normal, but when the un-checking out files dialog appeared I got hit with an erro saying that a project file was not checked out in the current workspace.

I hit OK and the un-checkout was aborted, but apparently it did do something, because when i re-ran the check-in, it was a new project file that it claimed was not checked out. Repeating this I eventually got everything checked in, at least this is what I have to cross my fingers and hope for.

I have also seen this behavior in the stand alone plastic gui.

Thanks for your feedback. We are interested in fixing this annoying issue, but we havn't an easy way to reproduce it. Can you please, provide a post with the exact steps to reproduce the problem? I tried the actions that you describe in the post but I was unable to reproduce it.

Thanks for your help,

It is hard to come up with a certain step-by-step guide to reproduce this. This is something that happens occasionally. It seems like it is a VS2010 issue, since I can perform a check in with undo on unmodified item without problems in the Plastic GUI for the same change set that the VS2010 complaints about.

I will try to enable some logging. Maybe that will help. In general we have a lot of nasty issues with the VS2010 plugin. I will post some more error reports later.
