Visual Studio in Hyper-V cannot open host files RRS feed

    I'm using Hyper-V with Visual Studio 2013 accessing a solution stored on the host computer.  I do this so i can check in my code to TFS from the host and test my code changes in the VM.

    When i connect to the VM, in Windows Explorer, i can see all files from the host and open them in Notepad.

    When i open the host solution in Visual Studio 2013 on the VM, i can no longer see any host files in Windows Explorer from within the VM and Visual Studio cannot open any of the files. 

    When i open the host solution in Visual Studio on  the VM, it shows all folders and files however they cannot be opened.

    This seems to be a bug.

    Has anyone experienced any issues with opening host Visual Studio solutions in Hyper-V?

    Ping!  Can Microsoft weigh in on this?  This appears to be pretty fundamental.  Does this mean no one is using Visual Studio in a Hyper-V VM?  I would like to be able to let my management know we cannot proceed due to this issue.
