Visual Studio 2008 PowerCommands

I keep losing these, the Visual Studio 2008 PowerCommands, these are one of my essential installs for VS 2008, from the site: Below is a list of the included in PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2008 version 1.1. Refer to the Readme document for additional command details and screenshots. Enable/Disable PowerCommands in Options dialog This feature allows you to select which commands to enable in the Visual Studio IDE. Point to the Tools menu, then click Options. Expand the PowerCommands options, then click Commands. Check the commands you would like to enable. ...

End of a busy week

Well, that's it...TechReady1 is at an end, as with all conferences there were some high and low points (usual lows, level of content...length of sessions etc). The highs were pretty good though! C# 3.0 is just looking amazing - you'll just love this stuff when you see it at the PDC; there have been some *sneaks* which may or may not be true and I guess there will be some controversy about some of the new stuff...but I just love it! Seeing Anders Hejlserg's presentation and Chalk Talk you can tell how excited he is about this stuff too...just get your...

Visual Studio Team System VPC due next week...

Just heard that there will be a publicly (well,  MSDN subscriber) avaialble download of a Virtual PC image of Visual Studio Team System 2005 (plus all the bits you need to run it) avaialble soon. We've been using this internally for a while and if you want to really get to grips with this great product, it's fantastic...not sure about the memory requirements yet - but I'd guess 512MB won't cut it :-)

[HELP] Question on Windows Server 2003 Wildcard Mapping and VS.NET

Here's what I'm doing - I have a wildcard map set on my IIS 6 server to allow me to do "/" path mapping through my ASP.NET HttpHandler - problem is that VS.NET can no longer open the web project at that address...anyone any idea why? UPDATE:  Looks like it has to do with Front Page Server Extension stuff...sooner that goes away the better (roll on VS.NET 2005!). Anyway, to get around this I used the instructions here which basically tell you how to avoid the nasty FPSE stuff and run Web Projects like a normal class library (which also...

Visual Studio 2005 may become Visual Studio 2006 - that sucks!

Just read here, of course this is pure speculation right now but it would seem likely that if this is true (Sql Server 2005 is being delayed until Q3 2005 or so...) the Visual Studio 2005 will also be delayed by at least that much. This would be a terrible move - especially as MS are already encouraging people to move to using the 2005 products early and devoting entire editions of MSDN magazine to the product (which doesn't even have a go-live license yet!). The latest betas of VS 2005 seem pretty stable and ASP.NET 2.0 appears to be pretty feature complete (especially...

Source Control stuff greyed out in Visual Studio .NET 2003?

One of our developers had a problem where his VS.NET 2003 installed on Windows Server 2003 was greying out all of the options under the Source Control menu - took a little while to find the solution but eventually discovered it here - so if you have this problem, run a tool called SSINT.exe from your VSS\Win32 directory.

Missing some really interesting stuff...

Today the Design Preview of new versions of ASP.NET happens in London...but I have a prior engagement and can't go...wahhhh!!! If anyone from the ASP.NET design team is reading this - I love travel - and the Residence Inn in Redmond is lovely ;-)Anyway, from what I've seen of Whidbey (and I can't even talk about that!) it is looking stunning...well done...oh man, it is going to be fun getting the new stuff into production,,,

XSLT editor for VS.NET

Now this is very cool...why VS.NET doesn't have this built in is beyond me...Visual XSLT pretty much all you need for XSLT development within Visual Studio .NET...costs $295 for commercial users but they have an educational license (which I think is always a good idea!) see here for pricing...
