Subversion and Visual Studio Project files

2. October 2007

Somewhat off-topic, but does anybody know a proper solution to the problem that each Visual Studio instance seems to save project and solution files in a different way? (example)

My preferred solution would be a tool which loads the xml file(s) and saves them in a predefined order without changing the semantics of the files. This could be used as a pre-commit script to subversion, so that the source tree only ever sees a ‘unified’ version.

There has been some discussion on the QT list about this, but all the suggestions are workarounds which imo do not work in a distributed team.
