    I keep on runing into the fact that, when using the upgrade wizard in a project, all of my unused culture and messages files and theses that I so carefully removed, were being put back into place. Since my project is tied to a remote TFS server and the wizared talks to the server for each tiny file, the upgrade itself takes about 6 hours (!!!). I decided to use the wizared again since it was a long time ago I did an update and did not have the manual steps ready in my mind.

    What I need to do to remove the files without severe delays (removing a file causes the same delay because of the chatter to TFS) is to manually go into the .csproj file to remove the entries. I don't recall if I have to manually have to go into TFS to do  This is very cumbersome and not a smooth experience.

    I would like to request for improvement/enhancement in this and ask for an option to only update files that are actually in use/present in the solution.

    Anyone else experiencing this and what are your thoughts and solutions? Would you also like to get the wizard improved at this point?

    Thanks, Coen.

    Hi Coen,

    I am sorry to find out that the upgrade is taking so long on your side. I understand your request to improve the performance but at this point we have technical limitations to implement a valid solution.

    Here are some alternatives that you may consider:

    • Switch your project to use the scripts and content files from our CDN. The Project Configuration Wizard provides an option for that. You simply select the Use CDN Support checkbox on the last page of the wizard.
    • Use TFS local workspace if you don't. However, this will impact the way you perform version control operations so you have to be careful.

    I hope the provided solution will help.
