Client fault when changing working dir for branch

Post by nmcalpin » Mon Jan 17, 2005 1:42 pm

This was posted in the regular forum by one of our developers, I am posting it here in gold so that it can get a quicker response.

We're having this new problem (see below) after just getting past the other bug we found, whereas we were able to rollback a file, past the point where it had been branched from another project, which resulted in scrambled history for the branch and original file.

An exception was encountered during the get latest operation. Exception: Server was unable to process request. --> Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

This occurs in client 3.0.1 (2769) when I try to perform a Get Latest Version on a branch for which I have changed the working directory. The reason I changed it was that the client was reporting a large number of files which needed merging due to having the same directory for two different branches. So I changed the working dir for one of them, but the list of files needing to be merged did not update, even after restarting the client. I am now _stuck_ with a pending change set list that is full of files needing to be merged for a directory that contains NO LOCAL FILES.

What should I do?

Things are in a confused state.

First close the Vault Client. Then delete the client side cache:

Next, restart IIS.

You should be able to reset working folders now.
