• After more than 30 years running websites and forums I am retiring.

    I have made many friends through the years. I will cherish my time getting to know you. I wish you all the best. This was not an easy decision to make. The cost to keep the communities running has gotten to the point where it's just too expensive. Security certificates, hosting cost, software renewals and everything else has increased threefold. While costs are up ad revenue is down. It's no longer viable to keep things running.

    All sites will be turned off on Thursday 30 November 2023. If you are interested in acquiring any of the websites I own you can Email Schwarz Network.

Git Not Working with Project on Network Drive




I have a CMake project on a network drive. The project must remain on the network drive due to the way our development environment is designed. The problem is that upon updating Visual Studio 2019 Professional to version 16.7.0 from 16.2.3 Git no longer updates properly. For example, I am able to make one change (stage, change branch, etc...) via the Git Changes window, but after executing one git command the GUI stops updating to reflect the repository. If I execute subsequent commands it still performs the action, as I can see via console output, but the only commands I can use are the ones that Visual Studio sees as valid.

I have tested the exact same repo locally with a fresh clone and I am able to perform all git commands with no issue, so the issue lies with having the repo on the network drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
