“protobuf” visual studio a namespace cannot directly contain members such as fields or methods

Hi everyone,

I ran into the following intellisense error while adding a new proto file:

“protobuf” visual studio a namespace cannot directly contain members such as fields or methods

This was one of many errors that were shown and appeared to be an issue with Intellisense mistaking the file for a normal class definition. The following appears to have fixed it:

1) Right click on the file and select “exclude from project”
2) Clean the solution and rebuild
3) Re-include the file in the project (you may have to toggle ‘Show All Files’ at the top of solution explorer to see the excluded item).

Cheers,
Chris

Exited with code 9009 – Visual Studio Build

Hey everyone,

I ran into the following error today while attempting to build a solution:

combiner exited with code 9009

It apparently means that a file couldn’t be found. The solution was to simply restart visual studio.

I’d been manually adding them to the directory and this is apparently a common cause. See the following Stackoverflow post for more info: https://stackoverflow.com/a/28198020/522859

Could not find part of the path ‘C:xlib’ – Adding new Web API Project

Hey everyone,

I ran into the following error when I tried to add a new Web API project in Visual Studio Express 2015 for Web:

Could not find part of the path ‘C:xlib’

The workaround for this was to temporarily unbind the project from TFS: File > Source Control > Advanced > Change Source Control > Click unbind on each of the projects

While not the same problem, this post helped me out: https://github.com/NuGet/Home/issues/1164

TF30063: You are not authorized to access asxproject – TFS Online/Visual Studio

Hey everyone,

I ran into the following issue while trying to install the HTML Agility Pack via Nuget today:

TF30063: You are not authorized to access asxproject…

This fixed it for me:
– Go to “Team Explorer”
– Up the very top click on the “Connect to Team Projects” button (power cable looking icon next to the home button)
– Right click on the project and then click connect

Once connected, everything seemed to start working for me again. Check out this stackoverflow post more info: http://stackoverflow.com/a/16700451/522859

To fix it, all you need to do is run the exe with administrative privileges.

oldIndex must be a valid index in the Children collection (Visual Studio)

Hey everyone,

Just posting this in case anyone else runs into it. After unshelving, the following error kept popping up when I tried to open files using the solution explorer:

oldIndex must be a valid index in the Children collection
Parameter name: oldIndex
Actual value was -1.

I’m still not sure what caused it, but restarting visual studio seems to have fixed it.

Unescape String in Watch Window – Visual Studio

Hey everyone,

Just a quick post on how to remove the escape characters from a string in the watch window. All you’ve got to do is append “,nq” (short for no quotes) to the watch variable name.

MyLongString becomes MyLongString,nq

This removes all of the quotes and line breaks. Pretty handy for when you’ve got to copy the values.
