Visual C++ 2010 Beta 2.

When I check the "Show All Files" button in the Solution Explorer and uncheck it again, the display mode does not go back to normal (filter mode).

I guess this error was caused since the time you made the new file called "*.vcxproj.filters".

Thanks for the follow up clarification. Using the recent additional information provided we have now reproduced the behaviour. It will not be possible to fix this issue in time for the Visual Studio 2010 release. However, the bug has been updated with the new reproduction steps and continues to be tracked for the next release. The work-around suggested earlier remains viable.

Sorry to double post, but to clarify:

This problem occurs when all the filters in a project are empty, or there are no filters at all.

I am always getting this problem with my win32 projects. It probably effects other types, although I dont use them so I wouldn't know for certain.

Randomly occurs when clicking the 'Show All Files' button in the solution explorer to switch from one view to the other.

The 'Show all files' button toggles between checked/unchecked when clicked, in both the solution explorer and in the project menu, but the files shown do not change.

Reloading project reverts the view back to normal, but does not prevent it from happening again.

Quick testing performed while typing this seemed to indicate that it has somethign to do with having an empty filter/no filter, as this reproduced the problem 100% of the time, and adding a file to a filter fixed it.
