1) C# project
2) Create a new class
3) Create solution folder and move the class to the new folder
4) VAX still references the old file location
5) Delete the folder. VAX *still* references the deleted file

One has to rebuild symbols and restart IDE.

VAX: 2341.2
VS: 16.2.3

I am seeing a very similar problem here, I am just running tests to find out where this works and where this fails.

Are you using a C# .NET Core solution, or a different type of C# project? The C# project type appears to be a factor here.

The solution on the video was .NET Framework project (default console application template).
But my main project is .NET Core 3 and I'm seeing the same problem.

I have some of the same problems here, enough of them that it looks like I am seeing the same problem, I have put in a bug report for this:

case=141188

I don't get quite the same behaviour, but I have a situation where I do need to do a VA symbol database rebuild before VA will pick up the new file in the solution.

This really should not be happening, apologies for this problem.

I just hope you are not running into this to often in your solution.
