Description

Using Visual Studio 2010 SP1 on Windows 7.

Working with a solution which contains 5 projects. The solution has 7 configurations and the projects each have 7 configurations. I'm trying to rename one of the project configurations. When attempting this I get an error message which indicates "Invalid pointer".

Note that renaming solution configurations works. The problem is just with renaming project configurations.

Why close this issue? It is still a valid issue even with Visual Studio 2003 Update 3. It seems that all 3 issues I've had today while migrating a VS2010 solution to VS2012 have bugs "closed" by MS, without any resolvement or workarounds. Is the VS team incapable of reproducing issues that people find and report, or are we just getting the run around due to the VS team's relucantance to address, recreate or fix any issues?

Hi Dave Calkins,

I have tried with a small project, but no luck. I have no idea about the relationships among the projects and the solution.

Could you please help to confirm if this issue is reproducible with some other projects? It will be much better if you could provide us with a sample project zip.

Thanks again for your efforts and we look forward to hearing from you.

The project where I saw this is a large one and one that I can not share. I do not know if the problem would occur using a small sample project. Note that the solution contains 5 projects and there are 8 configurations for the solution and each project. The error did not occur when renaming the solution configurations only the project configurations. So you could try creating a small project with this sort of setup to see if it would happen.
