Visual Studio 2013 Pro - Pending Changes comments box has vanished RRS feed

  • Question

  • As the title states, when I go to check in pending changes I usually have a box to enter comments. Suddenly, this box has disappeared and I can't get it back!

    I tried resetting the computer, resetting the VS environment, starting VS in safe mode, and a couple other things. So far, no luck.

    Any ideas what on earth could be the cause?

    There should be a comments box around where the red square is.

  • Hi noamo48,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to your description, your issue is about Team Explorer. Since our forum is to discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor, I will help you move it to the appropriate forum: Visual Studio Team Foundation Server Team Foundation Server - General for dedicated information, you will get a more professional support from there, thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Sara

  • Hi noamo48,

    Thank you for posting here.

    First, do you install TFS Power tool? If you install TFS Power tool, uninstall and remove it.

    Secondly, clean the TFS client cache on your local machine. The cache is under the path: C:\Users\***\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Team Foundation\5.0\Cache. (If you use TFS 2013, choose 5.0 folder; if you use TFS 2015, choose 6.0)

    Finally, reboot your client machine.

    Best regards,

  • Thank you for the suggestion. I tried this and it had no effect unfortunately. What else can we attempt before resorting to completely uninstalling/reinstalling?

  • have you tried to run devenv with setup parameter ?

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe /setup

  • I have done that. Also tried running in safe mode. Both had no effect. I'm hoping there's an alternative to completely reinstalling...

  • than try Craig's solution and clear the componentmodelcache:

    "Pending Changes” and “Source Control Explorer” missing from Team Explorer in Visual Studio 2013

    If you get this issue in VS2015 and running "C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0Common7IDEdevenv" /setup doesn't fix you issue you can try the following:

    1. Close all instances of VS

    2. Delete all files in C:Users<user.admin>AppDataLocalMicrosoftVisualStudio14.0ComponentModelCache

    3. run "C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0Common7IDEdevenv" /setup

  • Hi,

    Is all your team projects couldn't see the comments? Could you check in code with comments using tf command?

    Best regards
