Git Issue With Visual Studio 2015

- 1 answer

I have a Visual Studio solution inside a git repository created with TortoiseGit version 1.8.16.0 (git version 2.6.2.windows.1)

I just updated Visual Studio from 2015 to 2015 Update 1, and it stopped tracking changes on my files. also it won't allow me to commit anything.

Is this some sort of a known problem? are there any solutions?


update

(ironic title...) VS tracks unsaved files as "changed" and saved files appear to be "unchanged"

switching branches is behaves correctly and results in an error if there are uncommitted (real )changes


update 2

could this in the output window could have anything to do with the error:

Opening repositories:

Could not open 'C:/[project path].VC.opendb': The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Answer

I had the exact same issue as you and spent hours trying to get it to work, including re-cloning.

I solved it on my end by adding the *.VC.opendb and *.VC.db files to the .gitignore file of my project.

As soon as I returned to Visual Studio all my pending changes were showing. As far as I can tell it's all working normally again.
