  • 1. How access Team Foundation Server from a VS Addin
    I want to catch events when a field is changed within a Work Item form. Doing this in a Forms application is rather straightforward but I want to create an Addin to VS and perform the event handling from there. My problem is how to get hold of the Team Foundation Server object. To use the GetServer-method of the Factory-class I need the name of the server and I want to use the fact that the user has opened the Team Server from within the VS using the menu. So, how do I from the VS object model find out the name of the Team Foundation Server which VS is hooked up towards ? BEz
  • 2. Web forms design view and tool box suddenly disappeard in VS 2
    Gary, Thanks for your fast reply. I am not aware of any SW I installed recently that would be likely to have caused this problem. The last thing I did install was the MS web service SW factory. However, what I did immediately before teh problem occurred was to create a project/website from imported (aspx) files created in VS studio 2005 professional (whereas I myself have the Team Edition Architect version). Anyway, assuming my VS is corrupted, what can I do get it back working? Thanks, Martin
  • 3. Missing Macros menu
    Hello, I now use VS.NET 2005 Team Ed. but wonder why the menu 'Macros' under Tools was removed. I wanted to import some macros I used in VS.NET 2003.. We use Team Edition for Developers and I checked that also my coleegs miss this menu item. However I can see in newsgroups talking about Macros in VS.NET 2005, so it seems that only Team editions lacks for it.. Is there any way how to get it back or at least how to import macros from prev. version of VS.NET? Thanks eXavier
  • 4. VS2005 dataset designer won't add a table
    When trying to drag and drop a table from the Server Explorer to the DataSet Designer i get the error: "Failed to merge object(s)." "An item with the same key has already been added." And the designer will not add the table. What's wrong?
  • 5. Source files for Setup projects
    Using VS 2005 to build a C# application, I have noticed that if the setup project references Primary output from an executable project, the setup project uses the obj\Release folder to get the executable file while the dlls used by the exe come from their respective Release folders. What is the purpose for the obj folder in a C# application? Why does the setup project use the obj folder instead of the release folder? Thanks, Leslie

Did you find a solution to this problem?  I've just reinstalled VS 2008 Professional on XP sp3 and it crashes everytime I try to change a property.  Kind of useless.

3.VB Express 2008 Vs VS2003 Professional

Hello. I have been using VS2003 Professional for several years but I recently 
downloaded the free VB2008 Express Edition so that I could use the 
"Truncate"method in converting decimal degrees to DMS (degrees, minutes, and 
seconds). The MS Website stated that this is an absolutely free Express 
Edition but experience has taught me that if it is "free" you get something 
less that the version that  costs hundreds of dollars. I am 81 and just 
program a little for myself and a few friends (no charge- I give my programs 
away free) so I was wondering if this Express Edition is really all that I 
need since my requirements are so minimal. Do I really need anything more 
that the 2008 Express Edition for the little programming that I do? Thanks in 
advance for any comments or suggestions on this.
