    After recent AppBuilder version updates I couldn't load a project from Team Foundation Server source control due to project errors (see attached screenshot).

    ...iceproj: error  : Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: projectName

    Upon editing and inspecting the .iceproj  file I found that several settings have been removed and a new <Content Include=".abproject" /> item has been added (see attached screenshot).

    Manually dragging or including the file in the project via context menu did not work. I had to open Source Control Explorer and manually add it and check it in (see attached screenshot).

    That did the trick and now AppBuilder projects can be shared and updated in source control. Perhaps the .abproject file should be made to work within the IDE better for source control purposes in future versions?

    Hi Brandon,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I am happy, that you managed to fix the issue on your side. Nevertheless, you are absolutely correct that the whole project upgrade workflow needs improvements. The good news is, we have already planned such for the upcoming release. 

    Thank you for the valuable feedback and please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
