Description Tomasz Cielecki 2014-10-10 04:36:21 UTC
When using TFS for version control, it known for having its files locked down when they are checked in. Opening the Info.plist file without having Entitlements.plist checked-out crashes Visual Studio without any error, until you look in the log burried in AppData.

Wouldn't it be a bit more graceful if you notified the user that the file is not accessible instead of just crashing VS?
