After a Gated check-in Build, reconcile or ignore pop up dialog\message is missing

Explanation:

This issue may occur If you have multiple Visual Studio version instances installed in your box

Solution 1:

Make sure the BuildNotification.exe version loaded in your box matches the Visual Studio version you used for development

BuildNotification.exe for Visaul Studio 2012 will be located at <drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE

Solution 2:

1. Exit out of the BuildNotification tool from taskbar. (right click and Exit).

2. Navigate to <drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE

3. Open BuildNotification.exe.config

4. Edit the trace in there to uncomment to capture the trace. 

Original from:

  <!-- enable soap tracing by uncommenting the following  

  <appSettings>

    <add key="TFTrace.Writer" value="true" />

    <add key="TFTrace.DirectoryName" value="%TEMP%\\TFLogFiles" />

    <add key="TeamFoundationSoapProxy.EnableSoapTracing" value="true" />

  </appSettings>

   <system.diagnostics>

    <switches>

      <add name="TeamFoundationSoapProxy" value="4" />

      <add name="General" value="4" />

    </switches>

    <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="3"/>

  </system.diagnostics>

-->

</configuration>

 to:

  <!-- enable soap tracing by uncommenting the following  -->

  <appSettings>

    <add key="TFTrace.Writer" value="true" />

    <add key="TFTrace.DirectoryName" value="%TEMP%\\TFLogFiles" />

    <add key="TeamFoundationSoapProxy.EnableSoapTracing" value="true" />

  </appSettings>

   <system.diagnostics>

    <switches>

      <add name="TeamFoundationSoapProxy" value="4" />

      <add name="General" value="4" />

    </switches>

    <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="3"/>

  </system.diagnostics>

 </configuration>

 5. Save the trace.

** You might have to open notepad.exe as Administrator if it does not allow you to save it.

** Don't close notepad, because you will need to undo this tracing later.

6. Run "Build Notification" from TFS2012.

7. Trigger a Gated Build. Once the build complete, wait for a few minutes to confirm the dialog appears.

If it works, you can undo the steps from 1-6 again to undo the steps.
