Updating pending checkins visual studio
There is one file that I always made changes to, but that I never want to be checked in.I would like TFS to block me from ever checking it in or committing the changes. Details: There is another developer on the project that has checked in some bad code that I prefer to comment out on my local machine.Now it seems as though it's doing it on a foreground thread which is freezing the ui and taking far longer than it ever has before.I've read that in Studio 2003, "Updating Pending Checkins" happened on a Foreground thread, but that in Studio 2005 it happens on a background thread allowing you to continue working while it's doing its thing...Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S. Update: After re-installing Source Safe, Studio and searching the Internet I've decided that what it seems to be doing is "Updating Pending Checkins" ...which is fine, this has always taken ages, but it used to do it on a background thread.Thanks for the quick reply, I kinda agree, the problem seems to introduce itself after SP1 was installed on VS2005.
Is this just due to the size of the project or are there other things that could be tried to reduce the time it takes The absence of the window has no effect on how long it takes.
They might give a hotfix if I come up with a good reason for it.
Hi, I do hope that they will come up with a hotfix soon, because it is actually impossible for me to use "classview" tab, since it gets refreshed on a one-second basis for a 3000-and-something-classes project.
not sure if this is the problem, certainly seems related.
Is it possible to prevent the pending checkins to be updated on each checkout within VS2005 The solution is rather large, around 2000 files, and each time we checkout a file it starts updating the pending checkins, but because the updating seems to be done on the main thread, the whole UI is unresponsive for 15-20 seconds.
