info.plist gets readonly when checked in in TFS.

When it is readonly, you open the project property page, and change the version in "iOS Application" tab, then a dialog box prevents you to go away. You can not click on the info.plist file, it will trigger the dialog again and again.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

VS 2012
iOS for VS 1.10.30

After changing info.plist to read only then user is unable to make changes in iOS application property page. And also unable to quite VS or even property page.

However, user have to close VS via task manager.

Unfortunately, Info.plist must be writable - this is the way iOS gets the information about the application. Jose, can you test with TFS to see if we can work around this issue somehow?

I have checked this issue and now we are able to edit properties of project after changing info.plist to read only as shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/pMP95Dw5ROh

Using XVS 3.7.178 + X.iOS

Hence closing this issue.
