Description PJ 2013-10-09 18:15:30 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1) Be unpaired
2) Open a solution
3) See the pairing dialog appear
4) After a few seconds, the 'Loading solution projects' dialog appears behind the pairing dialog
5) Click on the 'Loading solution projects' dialog
6) Attempt do do anything else at that point


The window is seen in the task bar so I can re-focus it, or otherwise stays on top till resolved


I have to end the process or alt tab.

We should avoid situations where people feel like they should kill devenv from the task manager. The window should just be a normal window (selectable from the task bar), modal, or should not prevent the solution load from finishing (so at the very least I can minimize VS and see it).

Fixed this in master and cherry-picked

Note to me: I rewrote some of this code for 1.8 so I want to double check I have not regressed this fix.
Comment 3 dean.ellis 2013-10-30 12:54:34 UTC
The pairing dialog doesn't appear while the progress bar is showing, so its not possible to switch focus. Doesn't look like this regressed.

Hi Oleg,
Could you verify this bug and add a testcase to QA Automation test suite.

Comment 5 Oleg Demchenko 2013-11-04 19:48:54 UTC
As Dean told,  pairing dialog doesn't appear while the progress bar is showing. Works fine for me

Here is actual:

There's no need to keep reassigning this if it's closed. It was only re-opened for me to double check, i didn't mean for it to propagate through so many people.

Today, we have checked this issue with:

Windows 7
VS 2012
MTVS 1.10.12

Now I have observed that when we create or open solution the it prompts us to connect to build host. When we select any build host then it prompts us to enter PIN. After entering PIN, A loading window appear and we are unable to click on that because is goes away very fast and project loads successfully. This is the screencast for the same: Screencast: http://screencast.com/t/Df3kflF4fVDD
Hence marking this as Verified
