Description softlion 2014-05-30 11:47:01 UTC

Open an existing ios project where documents (sources files) are open (ie: as tabs).
If while opening this project the "connect to ios host" window pops up, VS freezes and can only be killed.
This occurs only if documents were opened in tabs the last time the solution was closed.

The next time VS is launched, it displays this message:

"An error was encountered while opening associated documents the last time this solution was loaded. Document load is being skipped during this solution load in order to avoid that error."

The "connect to ios host" window still pops up, but it works as expected.

I have tried to reproduce this issue many times but not able to reproduce it.

1. Opened a Readme file of an iOS project in VS.
2. Close that project.
3. Again open it.
4. It opens Reamde file in VS and "Connect to iOS host" window pop up Appear

And I am successfully able to connect to build host and VS does not freeze.

Please let me know If I have missed some steps to reproduce this issue.

Could you please provide IDE logs?
