ASP.NET (C#) Question

How do you clear your Visual Studio cache on Windows Vista?

I have a problem where my ASP.NET controls are not able to be referenced from the code behind files.

I found a solution in Stack Overflow question ASP.NET controls cannot be referenced in code-behind in Visual Studio 2008.

But I cannot seem to find my Visual Studio cache to clear it. I am using Visual Studio 2005 on Windows Vista.

Answer

The accepted answer gave two locations:

here

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\VWDWebCache

and possibly here

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\WebsiteCache

Did you try those?

Edited to add

On my Windows Vista machine, it's located in

%Temp%\VWDWebCache

and in

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\WebsiteCache

From your additional information (regarding team edition) this comes from Clear Client TFS Cache:

Clear Client TFS Cache

Visual Studio and Team Explorer provide a caching mechanism which can get out of sync. If I have multiple instances of a single TFS which can be connected to from a single Visual Studio client, that client can become confused.

To solve it..

For Windows Vista delete contents of this folder

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Team Foundation\1.0\Cache
