Error description

  • You may receive the following error when opening a solution that
    is under Rational ClearCase source control from Windows Explorer
    or ClearCase Explorer:
    
    "The source control provider associated with this solution could
    not be found.  The projects will be treated as not under source
    control.
    Do you want to permanently remove the source control bindings
    from this project?"
    
    This will occur for solutions created in both Microsoft Visual
    Studio 2015 or 2017 opened in Visual Studio 2017.
    
    If you say "NO" and continue, it appears that the solution is
    not under source control.
    
    Workaround:
    
    Open the solution in VS 2017 IDE in Front Desk.
