List of KNOWN VS2005/Vista issues.......

P: n/a
(I know this is a great big newsgroup no-no, but I originally only posted to
microsoft.public.dotnet.general and that newsgroup doesn't seem to have near
the readership of these - so I thought I'd also post this info here for the
benefit of the greater dotnet programming community.)

Well, after looking at this list, I'm thinking of staying with XP/VS2005 for
a while longer. At least until SP2 is out and Vista has been burped a few
times.

Here's the link to the list of KNOWN woes that await MS developers on Vista.

And don't forget to review
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/howtobu...tasupport.mspx for the SQL
Server 2005 / Vista KNOWN issues also.

Is there any wonder fewer and fewer people are choosing programming as a
career?

"Visual Studio on Windows Vista

I would avoid using VS.NET on Vista until VS.NET 2005 SP1 Update for
Windows Vista is final."

That has been released some time ago. more than a month in any case.
And I think this has zilch to do with people choosing a career in
programming or not.

Though I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised that the original post was
not accompanied by a 'linux is perfect' manifesto.

I seem to have missed something.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/bb265237.aspx

"For developers using Visual Studio 2005 on Windows Vista, Microsoft
is in current development on an update to Service Pack 1 called the
‘Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Vista Refresh Beta’. This update builds on the
improvements made in SP1 and delivers a first class experience for
developers wanting to take advantages of the new features in Windows
Vista. The Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Update for Windows Vista is expected
to ship after the consumer availability of Windows Vista in Q1 of 2007
and is now available in beta."

If you have other information, I'd be most happy to hear it.
And I think this has zilch to do with people choosing a career in

My own impression is that arrogant attitudes can be found among
supporters of any OS.

My bad. I assumed that SP1 is also SP1 for Vista, which it is, except that
the SP1 that you now install on vista is not 'SP1 Update for vista' Maybe
SP2 would have been a better name...

True.
It wasn't my intention to be arrogant, and I am sorry if I appeared that
way.
But from time to time, there are posts about how we are all stupid for using
Windows / VC and that linux / gcc would save the world if we were willing to
free us from the yada yada yada.

Which is why I sometimes get ticked off about these kinds of posts.
These forums are supposed to be about programming and helping each other.
Starting threads like this has no point whatsoever. They can only raise
ideological debates, possibly ending with harsh words.
There are far more appropriate places for holding such debates.

Can you provide a link to page describing what it fixes for .NET C#

team bolg.

This is because there are only fixes for VC++ and the IDE not for C#, note that C# is only a
very small part of VS.
