When getting the latest version of all files in a solution the Visual Studio IDE dies, no error message and nothing is written to the event log.

If I use the "Get lastest version"- command per project it works fine but if I select the solution level I'm screwed.

When restarting the IDE and running the "Get lastest version"- command again it works.

Any ideas

Hello,

I had seen something similar when getting/checking in really huge solution over weak VPN connection. Basically, the operation timed out on us due to the network problem.

Possibly that is your issue as well - because if you start the get on the whole solution and then kill the IDE, upon restart the same operation will be probably faster (as you have updated some of the projects files in the previous run).

So how big is your solution And could you have any network issues

Thanks for the reply but I don't think that is the problem in this case as I'm on the company intranet and VS dies directly. When I get the latest version on a single project, TFS is working a lot longer than when it dies. The way it behaves I'd say that I'm getting an unhandled exception somewhere and having no way to display it VS just terminates instead.

Also my solution is "only" 5 projects (one web-app and 4 class libraries) with no more than 200-300 files in total.

Is there a way to isolate where the problem lies, my VS installation, project explorer or the TFS itself

Are there any upgrades to be installed, service packs I can't seem to find any.

By your description it does look like something different.

Sure, there is SP1 for VS 2005 and SP1 for TFS - but if I were you I'd investigate before.

Also, you may try to enable tracing on TFS server and see what calls are performed. That may give you a direction. For tracing see the following link.

Hope that gives you some start.
