How to prevent pending changes in TFS

Post by haye7889 » Thu Sep 14, 2017 5:31 pm

Hi all!
I'm using Visual Studios 2015 and it is connected to the Team Foundation Server for the Ranorex solution.
Anytime I create a build in Ranorex, it populates pending changes to recordings I did not make any changes to.
If I undo the included changes, they will come back whenever I rebuild in Ranorex.

I was wondering if there is a way to prevent unchanged recordings from showing up in Pending Changes so I don't have to constantly undo the changes.

Thank you,

Hi Haye,

Have you already tried to uncheck the following setting?

This setting could be found in Ranorex Studio under Tools/Options.

Hope that helps.

Hey asdf,

Thanks for the reply. I was able to create an external tool in Visual Studio to prevent unchanged files to show up.

I believe this would have also worked as well.

Thank you!
