Problem:

Project file added to Visual Studio in one machine is not appearing in another machine Visual Studio even though the file is added to the StarTeam repository?

Resolution:

  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2005 R2, 2006 R2
  • Product Component: StarTeam Plug-in for VS .NET 2005
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows XP

Description:
Project file added to Visual Studio in one machine is not appearing in another machine Visual Studio even though the file is added to the StarTeam repository?

If a user adds a new file to the project in Visual Studio 2005 and then adds to StarTeam repository, then the same file is not appearing in Visual Studio editor in another machine but the file appears in StarTeam client . Why does this happen.


Answer/Solution:

This will happen when the user doesn"t perform "Commit Project" after adding the file to StarTeam repository.

Right click on Project name in Solution Explorer
Select StarTeam--->Commit project

This will create a new revision of VS project file in StarTeam which has references to all the project files. After this operation, all the files will be recognized by VS in any other machine.
