Apparently, with the fresh 3.8 plugin version popups are gone for me.

devbotascommented, Oct 27, 2022

ok, could you please watch for the following:

  • do you get this behavior if you are working with only *.cs files
  • do you get this behavior when you are working with any XML like files (*.cshtml, *.razor, *.xml etc.)

I now only have open *.cs tabs. Popup still appears. However, problem is more apparent when project compilation state changes (errors-no errors). For example:

  1. Project compiles, I can startp the program with F5 and no popups.
  2. I introduce a compilation error, hit F5. Output-Build.txt popup occurs, sometimes even multiple times, just before VS shows “there were build errors” message. See the picture.
  3. I fix the code, hit F5 — usually no popups. image
