Visual Studio 13: Detect when file is changed outside the environment feature does not work for files on network shared folders

    General discussion

  • This with Visual Studio Professional 2013, Version 12.0.40629.00 Update 5

    "Detect when file is changed outside the environment" is checked

    - this feature works for files on local C: drive

    - this feature does not work for files on network shared folders (ie. open file in VS, open file in external editor, modify file in external editor, VS will not see the edit without closing and reopening the file)

    More details on my environment:

    - Windows 7 on Virtual Machine (Parallels on MacOS)

    - network shared folder is a shared folder on the host Mac
