Re: app.config checkout when design a form

The project is an old legacy VB project, where each form has a SqlConnection object. The connection string for the SqlConnection object is defined in app.config. The form designer file code gets the connection string by creating a System.Configuration.AppSettingsReader object and using the GetValue ...

Re: app.config checkout when design a form

The app.config file does not reference any form files and in fact is pretty trivial. Here's the whole file: <?xml version="1.0"?> <configuration> <configSections> </configSections> <appSettings> <!-- User application and configured property settings go here.--> <!-- Example: <add key="settingName" v...

Re: app.config checkout when design a form

It turns out that this problem was with us before we converted to VS 2010. And, it may have even been a problem when we used Visual Source Safe for version control (before we switched to Fortress). Is there any information maintained by Fortress that might maintain this strange relationship between ...

It's a very large VB.Net WinForm project.

Re: app.config checkout when design a form

Sure. The simplest example: Select and move a text box to another place on the form. The text box moves. Then click on another control on the form and the text box moves back to it original position. No, really it does! To me the more vexing question is why VS and/or Fortress think that app.config n...

Re: app.config checkout when design a form

We're using enhanced client. As I stated in my original post: If the first developer checks out app.config non-exclusively, the second developer appears to have the ability to work in the designer. However, any changes that are made are immediately undone when the second developer moves on to the ne...

app.config checkout when design a form

In VS 2010, when a developer starts to do design work on a form app.config is checked out. If a second developer tries to do design work on a different form in the same project, they are unable to do so if the first developer checked out app.config exclusively. If the first developer checked out app...

Re: Can't rename files in VS 2010

I've found that there are other files that I can not rename. As before I can't see why I am able to rename some files but not others. Is it possible that having different Fortress client and server versions is causing the problem? Can you suggest some things that I can try? Thanks.

Re: Can't rename files in VS 2010

Can you look in the Vault GUI client and see if the file you renamed previously is showing under the correct name? Yes. I did another test today on a different file. The rename worked and is shown with the changed name in the Fortress client (note that we use Fortress, not Vault). After upgrading to...

Re: Can't rename files in VS 2010

Yes, client was installed after VS 2010. I did an uninstall and reinstall and still have the same problem. However, I tried a rename on a different file and it worked. So there is something about the file I'm interested in that won't allow the rename. In comparing it to other files in the project (b...

Can't rename files in VS 2010

I recently upgraded from VS 2008 to VS 2010. In order to use the Fortress enhanced client I found on your support info that I needed to upgrade the Fortress client, which I did - from version 2.0.1 to 2.0.4. Our Fortress server is still at version 2.0.1. I had previously renamed files that were unde...

Re: Fortress pending changes lists files that are identical

Without making the change you suggested, all of the sudden all those crystal reports .vb files are no longer showing up in the pending change set. I have no idea why. To the best of my knowledge I have not changed any settings since my last email on 1/25. I suppose its possible that I inadvertantly ...

Re: Fortress pending changes lists files that are identical

I don't remember setting CVS or VSS mode but I believe that the options are set to that of VSS mode. Files are read-only. I created a new working folder and did a get latest with overwrite. I got exactly the same result as before: all of the .vb files associated with crystal reports .rpt files are l...

Re: Fortress pending changes lists files that are identical

Hmmm... I feel like we're talking in circles here. I've already stated that something is changing the timestamp. That's not an issue. However, the files have NOT been modified. As you suggested I changed from timestamp to CRC to determine if a file has changed. So even though Fortress should be usin...

Re: Fortress pending changes lists files that are identical

Linda, Maybe a different tack will yield an answer. As I stated earlier, app.config is always shown as checked out and unmodified. This is true even after I switched to CRC detection. Am I missing something? I've looked for options in Fortress help, this forum and web in general that might be relate...
