This issue is seemingly difficult to reproduce, however I have been able to consistently reproduce this issue on a win7 VM snapshot of a fresh MD and MFA install. I have gone back and forth from the current stable channel to the alpha and have also been able to reproduce, it doesn't require restoring the snapshot of the fresh install.
Updating MD and MFA through the MD updater will close, update, and restart MD. All updates will complete and be recognized.
After updating MD and MFA from the alpha channel, MD restarts but does not recognize that MFA is installed. Closing and restarting MD after this issue occurs causes MD to recognize the updated MFA.
Win7 32bit AND win7 64bit VMs run on VMWare, Host: OSX Lion 10.7.4
MFA 220.127.116.11234518 (Evaluation)
Gist for list of processes under MonoDevelop.exe:
If this is only on a fresh install, might it have something to do with the addin engine?
Just ran into this same issue again on a win8 x32 VM, however closing MD 18.104.22.168 and restarting it did not resolve the issue. After rolling back to the stable MD 22.214.171.124, my version of MD recognized MFA. However, once I then installed MD 126.96.36.199 from the alpha channel, MFA was once again unrecognizable.
Let's get this reproduced on a physical machine. Once we're in the state - what can we get you mhutch?
I don't know, we really need to get lluis to look at this.
Repro'd again on a physical win7x64 machine, closing MD and reopening causes MD to recognize that MFA exists.
*The bug is reproducible when only updating MonoDevelop to 188.8.131.52 through the MD updater.*
Installing MFA alpha first (without the updater) and then using the updater to update MD from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 causes this issue consistently. However, updating MD alpha first (without the updater) and then using the updater to update MFA from 4.2.4 to 4.2.5 does not cause this issue.
Another thing to note is that issue seems to be specific to Windows. I have been unable to repro on OSX Lion and Mountain Lion, while I have consistently been able to repro this issue on Win7 and Win8 32 and 64bit versions.
Assigning to Lluis as per comment 4.
He's on FTO till the end of next week. Do we want to procede with this release before then? I'd imagine there would be a huge influx of support case about it if we did.
CC'ing chrisntr to weigh in on the support implications.
Is it specific to this version, or just specific to updating?
Is there anything in the MD log file from the MD session in which this bug occurs?
A fix has been committed to master and 3.0.4 branch. It is a fix in the updater, so the fix can only be verified with an MD version that includes the new updater being updated to a different version.
