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?
