Description xarkam 2012-01-19 06:23:16 UTC
If the solution file is in another folder and if you use the contextual menu to open the .sln file, monodevelop make infinite opening loop.

       |-sln file

Better translation:
If the solution file is in another folder and if you use the context menu to
open the file. sln, monodevelop opens an infinite loop
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-05-01 14:54:57 UTC
Which context menu? The context menu in Windows Explorer?
Comment 3 xarkam 2012-05-02 08:12:49 UTC
Yes, by the context menu in Windows Explorer.
Comment 4 xarkam 2012-05-02 08:23:20 UTC
I tested the latest stable version:

The request to open a file. Sln in monodevelop via the contextual menu does two things:
monodevelop open but empty
Visual Studio is launched and opens the .sln asked by the context menu for monodevelop.

I make a new ticket for this.

This bug was targeted for a past milestone, moving to the next active milestone.

Closing this as not reproducible as I cannot repro in newer XS
