Dev Studio 2012: HTTP Code 404: Not Found error attempting to open a TFS 2010 project RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using Visual Studio 2012 version 11.0.50727.1 rtmrel.

    I have upgraded the TFS 2010 solution to TFS 2012 on a separate server.

    I open the new collection/project on the new server:

    Server: slc-tfs2

    Collection: LD

    Project: SSM

    I now attempt to connect to the old collection/project on the old server:

    Server: slc-tfs

    Collection: LD

    Project: SSM

    I get an error in the Team Explorer - Home that says:

    HTTP code 404: Not found

    I can access the slc-tfs version via the web and via the Visual Studio 2010 version.

    It appears that VS 2012 is caching something that is preventing me from switching collections/projects.

    Help!

    - Bruce

  • Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for your post!

    Please clear the the cache folder: C:\Users\userName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Team Foundation\4.0\Cache and try again.

    If it still not woks, please run the Devenv /ResetSkipPkgs and devenv /setup and see if it helps.

    Best Regards,

  • Hello Cathy,

    Yes, clearing the cache worked.  Now I can switch between the two projects successfully.

    I have a request though, there is nothing in the UI that shows me which collection I'm viewing.  Now that I have the same project in two different collections, how do I know which project I'm viewing?

  • Cathy,

    It turns out that I have to do this every time I switch collections/projects.  I hope that Microsoft fixes this soon.  I've created a defect to track this.

  • Just to add that you need to restart VS if it is open at the time of the cache being deleted.

  • Hi

    I had the same issue when upgraded to 2015 from 2010, 

    I removed the cache, 

    and I was switching between the servers (the old and the new) and the collections, there was no issues

    regards
