SlowCheetah - major issues -

A while ago i added SlowCheetah to my solution in order to transform the config file content between debug & build versions. It wasnt working out for me so i removed slowCheetah however, its now caused me some problems...

I uninstalled it and since then, i can no longer sync with my Teams Foundation. I get the following error

I have tried re-installing but that doesnt fix it

I have also tried removing it from my vbproj but when i did that, i couldnt load my solution.

Is there a way to fix this so that i can either retain it in my project and not use it remove it fully so that i can start to sync with Foundation again?

    Hi. I uninstalled it using the proper method. I Reinstalled it through nuget last night, it was a bit tricky. I had to install each version then copy the package folder out and once the latest version was installed, copy the previous versions back. This is because each update would remove the previous version but SlowCheetah itself somehow was maintaining a reference to the previous version files..Its back in my solution but will remain unused. Thanks

    Hi @NachitoMax, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    Do you mean the SlowCheetah extension? Which version of Visual Studio are you using? 

    Please try to install and uninstall it from Extensions > Manage Extensions
