I got the following error message in visual studio during programing :
“The file has been modified by … unknown”
It was because i called two times (by error) the item.update(); method.
This could happen as well when you code an event receiver (sometime happening when you do something on a list, web, site….) and you use item.update(), in order to fix that :
- call and disable event firing before your code with : base.EventFiringEnabled = false;
- update your item by calling item.systemUpdate(false);
- enable event firing with : base.EventFiringEnabled = true;
