    This simple little bug is a workflow crusher when you have lots of scripts.

    Sorry for the last post. But i have solved this issue atleast on my and my students computers.

    It had too do with letters like Å Ä Ö if you have these letters on a folder or on a script visualstudio wont open your scripts. Removing these letters and visualstudio and Unity works fine. This is however a very annoying little bug plz fix!
