Visual Studio 2019 error “The operation cannot be completed because BeginBuild has not yet been called.” RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded VS 2019 Community and every time I want to build or compile a program, I get the same message "The operation cannot be completed because BeginBuild has not yet been called." I use Windows 7 Ultimate SP1. I searched for the answer on the internet, but found nothing concrete. I tried to delete .vs folder and .suo file, but that didn't help either, .suo file comes back every time I try to build or compile a program so I can't get rid of it. I tried to reinstall VS 2019 multiple times but it didn't help. I get the same mistake at VS 2017. Does anyone know what the problem is?

  • Hello,

    If you removed the .vs folder with VS2019 closed then reopened VS2019 and perform a build rather than start and you still get the same message you need to use the feedback button on the top right corner and write up an issue on this.

    Reinstalling VS2019 will not change a thing.

    The .suo file will always come back.

    EDIT: Did you also try restarting your computer?

  • Yes, I tried it but it didn't work. I tried almost everything.

    Did you contact Microsoft as I suggested?
