Loading solution with VS2017 creates an additional workspace RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm using a VS2017 installation with TFS2019. Installed everything new.
    Made connection to TFS. Defined a local workspace. Download the software from TFS and loaded my solution file.
    This loading of solution creates a second sub workspace and I have no idea how this happened.
    It is somehow related with the sln file.

    Any idea how to fix this?
    Or a link how to better understand sln files.

  • This is not a normal behavior.  Do you have any files with the vsscc file extension checked in?

  • Hi BeatHoe,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Please check the DOC: Create and work with workspaces

    And since this issue is more related to TFS, we recommend you could redirect to stack overflow with TFS tag for better support.

    Have a nice day.

    Best Regards,

  • you should not check these files in.  They are probably what is causing the new work space to be created
