Issue:
User has only one project that has always worked fine, but today when she double clicks the Solution file to open the project she gets an error message and the project opens in Late Binding mode. Most of the SCM-related functions are greyed out and disabled. She cannot switch to Online mode. All other projects are working correctly.
Environment:
CA Harvest SCM v13.0.3
Visual Studio 2013
Windows 10 OS
Cause:
Root cause was not found but suspect a corruption in the binding files.
Resolution:
We backed up the project's folder and deleted all the files, then did an "Open from Source Control" to check out the project again. This resolved the problem.
