ProjectName.VC.db. Indeed according to the release notes, a new SQLite-based database engine is now being used by default, and that’s the file where the database is stored. The old file, named
ProjectName.sdfis now unused and can be safely deleted.
The change also demanded an update on my
.gitignorefiles to also ignore this new database file, and here it goes:
Debug/ Release/ *.aps *.db *.ffs_db *.ncb *.opensdf *.rar *.sdf *.suo *.user *.VC.opendb TODO.txtIf you import and old
.vssettingsfile, however, the option to use the new SQLite-based database can be rolled back to the old
.sdffiles. To manually change it, go to: Tools → Options → Text Editor → C/C++ → Advanced → Browsing/Navigation → Enable New Database Engine. Set it to “true”.
