    If you work remotely then you may find this feature intensely annoying!

    If my VPN to work is not up when I load the solution then it goes offline before I can stop it. Going back online takes time and finds changes I didn’t want to make.

    In visual studio, add this macro to EnvironmentEvents and it will pop up the ‘Team explorer’ window which will try to connect to team server *before* you can open the solution:

      Private Sub DTEEvents_OnStartupComplete() Handles DTEEvents.OnStartupComplete

           DTE.Windows.Item("{131369F2-062D-44A2-8671-91FF31EFB4F4}").Activate() ‘Team Explorer

       End Sub
