added files cant be viewed

Post by fpdave100 » Wed 09 May 2018 11:46

When a review has new files added, what ever options (under Advanced submenu) I try I get errors like:
--------------------------------
Review Assistant
--------------------------------
Error while getting the file revision from the repository.

Possible causes:
1. File was removed or renamed in an earlier revision.
2. Review had been created before the file was committed to the repository.
--------------------------------
OK
--------------------------------

and cannot view the file.

we are using:
  • RA 3.6.465
  • TFS
  • VS 2017
  • Devart Code Compare (free!)
viewing of existing files is fine

Edit>
If I do "open containing folder" against one of these new files I get:
--------------------------------
Review Assistant
--------------------------------
The specified folder doesn't exist:

C:\TFS\<TFS BRanch>\Release Instructions\Dev Next
--------------------------------
OK
--------------------------------

which doesnt exist on my machine - it should get these files from TFS surely

Edit (more info)>
some new files work!
It might be that new files under a TFS branch are visible, but that files in a folder under a TFS project do not work.

eg
$/<project>/<branch>/folder/newfile.sql would work,
$/<project>/folder/newfile.sql would not work.

We place some files not under a branch, for various reasons (eg deployment scripts).

Unfortunately, we can't reproduce the issue. Please, provide us with the following information:
1 A screenshot of Source Control Explorer with the Source Location and Local path
2 A screenshot of the Review Assistant project option with the repositories settings.

Please, send this information with the screenshots attached to us via the feedback option: https://www.devart.com/review-assistant/feedback.html. In this case, the information will be available to us only.
