Error description

  • When working in an IBM Rational ClearCase view using the
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2012/ClearCase integration, you may see
    that Visual Studio will stop responding when you try to add a
    file to the project that is outside a view using the 'Add As
    Link'operation.  For example, adding a file from C:\temp, will
    cause the issue.
    
    The 'Add' operation does not fail.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Copy the file into the view and then use 'Add As Link'.
