Description Pierce Boggan [MSFT] 2013-05-17 19:20:44 UTC
Description of Issue: After creating a new solution at the welcome screen, the solution is successfully created and loaded. Change the view to Visual Design, and the solution explorer area is completely blank, including no solution. However, the directory, solution, project, and accompanying files were created successfully in the directory. After adding the project, there is an issue with the display.

NOTE: I believe this is unique to 4.1.2. I haven't had this issue before updating!

Update: I'm still using 4.1.2 (build 2), but the issue seems to have resolved itself with a restart. Still very odd.

I have checked this issue with:
XS 4.2.4(build 266)
ML 10.8.4

Now this issue is not exists, After creating a new solution in XS and Changing the view to Visual Design, the solution explorer area is displaying correctly not Blank.

Hence marking this as Verified.
