Uninstall AnkhSVN from VS2012

  • Run the AnkhSVN uninstaller.

Note: I ran the uninstaller in Revo Uninstaller, and there were no left-over artifacts (files, registry entries).

The project 'X' is under source control. An error occurred registering this project with source control. It is recommended that you not make any changes to this project.

I was able to resolve this by editing the .csproj files in a text editor and removing the following lines:
