I'm using git to track a C++ project in VS2010. I'm using ignore patterns found on stackoverflow, which usually do not exclude the *.opensdf file. Unfortunately, when trying to commit the file, I get the following error:
error: open("foo.opensdf"): Permission denied
error: unable to index file foo.opensdf
fatal: adding files failed
Why do I get this error and how can it be avoided? Since I'm quite a newbie with VS2010, what is the use of this file?
*.opensdf is a temporary file opened only while .vcxproj/.sln is loaded to Visual Studio IDE. It should be added to your .gitignore file.
