VS 2015 RC: Git integration crashed

Suddenly, Visual Studio started showing this error at startup: “SccProviderPackage failed to load”.

Also, the Team Explorer window stopped showing the proper section for Git.

  • Remove some commits in GIT
  • How can Windows file and folder shortcuts be created via C#.NET code?
  • Using github on my project that uses NuGet
  • How to commit a change to a file using the GitHub DB API
  • Assembly binding error when building Office add-in: “FindRibbons” task failed unexpectedly
  • Reverting to a previous commit in Git for visual studio 2012
  • I’ve repaired the installation, uninstalled/installed VS and restarted several times. NOTHING fixes the issue.

    Please, notice that it’s Visual Studio 2015 RC.

    The activity log (ActivityLog.xml) says this:

    • 174 Begin package load [SccProviderPackage] {7FE30A77-37F9-4CF2-83DD-96B207028E1B} VisualStudio 2015/06/15 09:31:26.510

    The Team Explorer window shows this:

    Team Explorer

    I would appreciate any help.

  • How can i fetch unmerged pull requests that i do not own?
  • Doxygen and git for automated file version information
  • Heroku Deployment from multiple win7 64 machines
  • Using `gvim diff` instead of `vimdiff`
  • Git - Authentication failed
  • Evaluating git and merge doesn't seem to work the way I expected
  • One Solution collect form web for “VS 2015 RC: Git integration crashed”

    I had this same issue, look in your [Appdata]\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ActivityLog.xml for references to SccProviderPackage. Should give you the error info.

    In my case it was trying to load an old folder location that apparently had a messed up repo. Removing that folder from the filesystem fixed it.

    Running this command makes sure that all activity is logged:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE>Devenv /log
    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
