Vista RC1 & 2 - Developers perspective?

P: n/a
This message is for any developers using Vista RC1 or RC2:

I would like to know generally how you feel about developing with Vista
using Visual Studio.NET 2003 or 2005. What are you likes what are your
dislikes and have you encourted any major show stoppers regarding
compatibility (i.e. things you could run on WinXP that will not work on
Vista).

Please post to one of the many Vista forums (like
http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/Sho...=904&SiteID=1), this
is not the right NG for these kind of questions.

Rick Strahl has determined and blogged about his discovery that VS2005 does
not run in some manner significant to blog about when VS2005 is installed on
Vista. Microsoft has responded with something typical like stating "our
developers are our most important asset but tough titty, you all have to
wait until sometime after Vista is released when a patch will be released
shortly thereafter."

I don't know the details of Strahl's discovery but the trade press has
picked up his discovery and claim Microsoft's response caused a bit of a
fire storm in the past week. It seems to me .NET 3.0 will have to be used on
XP Pro for many many months to come or developers are S.O.L. when using
Vista.

Meanwhile developers using VS2005 with XP Pro want to know when VS2005 will
run without error on XP Pro?

I just discovered Strahl's blog item and it aparently had nothing to do with
VS2005 so my comments should be considered null and void.

Hello JDeats,

They said that none of VS 6, 2003, 2005 are working fine with Vista. MS will
provide SP1 (to the end of this year) for the VS 2005 to work with Vista.

All others VS version are out from Vista compatibility.

Current VS 2005 issues are the securities ones - no full support to debug
your apps

VS2003 will not be supported on Vista either, though VB6 will get full
support (both runtime and IDE).

I'd be happy to comment but I can't. Even with RC2, it won't upgrade over
Windows XP x64 edition and I'm not about ready to spend 5 or six additional
hours reinstalling all my "stuff" just to play with Vista.

Here's the article [1] I thought was attributed to Rick Strahl. IT discusses
VS2005 incompatibilities when using Vista.
