Permission issues in VS 2015: Access Denied on File in FeedCache

    Question

  • Hi,

    when I try to open a project in VS 2015 I get the error "Access denied" on a File located in ‪C:\Users\XY\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\FeedCache .

    The german message is "C:\Users\XY\Documents\Visual Studio 2015\Projects\App1\App1\App1.csproj : error : Der Zugriff auf den Pfad "C:\Users\XY\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\FeedCache\Feed-969FF52C4894C164-File.xml" wurde verweigert."

    Some hours ago I restarted my computer for system updates and immediately after that I installed the english language pack for VS.

    So I navigated to that FeedCache folder. For that Folder I have all permissions an the security settings grant me al privileges even for inherited files and folders (sorry, du to spam protection I can't poste a screenshot). But when i, for example, try to rename a file inside that FeedCache folder, I get a access denied Message. So for me it seems to be a matter of wrong previlegs.

    I've tried to disable Inheritance for the FeedCache Folder and the to re-enable it. But I get an error during enableing.

    I even went back to a restore point, but that changed nothing. So actually I try to let Visual Studio repair itself via the system settings -> uninstall.

  • Quick & dirty solution: rename that FeedCache Folder, start VS and open Project. VS will then create a new FeedCache Folder. For now it works.

    But I don't know for what these xml file are good for. Maybe I'll run into trouble later on.
