  • 1. rpc-literal or doc-literal encoded WSDLs
    Is it correct that VS2005 will contain several enhancements and additional features in VS2005/.NET2.0 which eliminate the restrictions/failures/limitations in terms of WS-Basic Profile (e.g. R2717 and R2726) compliance? Apparently VS2005 will provide the option to either generate rpc-literal or doc-literal encoded WSDLs. Is this correct and where can we find details on related enhacements?
  • 2. Launching xls file from VS.NET IDE causes a new instance of Excel to run, doesn't open in current instance
    Normally opening an XLS file causes the file to open in an already running instance of Excel if there is one. However, if I add an xls file to a project and open it from VS.NET IDE a new instance of Excel is launched. Any way to change this behavior? Thanks, Sam
  • 3. Dropdown list in "Properties" window
    Hello sirs, I have developed a custom webcontrol, that can be used in a webform. The custom control inherits from TextBox webcontrol. I need to have a public property in this custom control that will show as a dropdown list in the "Properties" window of Visual Studio IDE. The options for selection in this dropdown would be the variables/objects declared in the webform, that is, the parent container of the custom control. My problem: I don't know how to do this. Is there any hint, advice, sample, start point to give me? TIA, Leonardo
  • 4. Task List not displaying all Comment tasks
    I recently noticed that some of my Comment tasks (TODO's) were not being placed in the Task List. On further investigation it seems that after 100 or so were added to my file they stopped being displayed. To test this theory I then created a new project and added in 100 TODO's, //TODO: 1 ... etc and noticed that after //TODO: 99 my //TODO's were no longer displayed. My working project allows 137 to be displayed before showing no more. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? I should point out that some of the //TODO's were pasted into the code file, however I cannot see why this should matter.

1.VS.Net 2003 - Intellisense causing crash


I'm having a rather irritating problem with Intellisense in VS.Net 2003.  
Every time I try to get intellisense for a particular typed dataset studio 
maxes the CPU and hangs.  I have tried recompiling, checked the dataset for 
errors etc but cannot get around the problem.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as re-opening an 11 project 
solution with source control every 10 minutes is proving to be extremely 



2.VS.NET crashes after intellisense completes specific class name's property

It seems that my VS.NET decides to crash everytime I use a specific
class name for one of my classes, when the intellisense  completes any
or the properties' names.

For example, if my class is named "MyClass" (and everything compiles
ok), and then I decide to autocomplete the name of a property of this
type, VS.NET crashes:

MyClass myInstance = new MyClass();

When the intellisense opens to complete the "anyProperty", and I choose
to autocomplete it, VS.NET crashes.

If I rename MyClass to MyClass2, everything works fine....

Obviously this means that somewhere VS.NET stores MyClass class's name
and/or data which causes it to crash. I've tried deleting the obj and
bin folders of the project, restarting my machine etc', but to no

Has anyone got any idea what to do ? Is there some other location where
intellisense data etc' might be stored ?


3.Really nasty bug with intellisense causing the VS.NET 2003 IDE to lock

Since installing SP1 and using VS.NET 2003 I have been having terrible
problems with the intellisense locking the IDE. It only seems to
happen with certain assemblies, but happens a lot.

For example if I type:

MessageBox.Show( this, "Test", 

and then start using the Up and Down arrows to cycle through the
overrides the IDE locks/freezes up everytime. To unfreeze the IDE you
have to click on the VS.NET icon in the task bar and minimize then
maximise the screen and it comes back to life.

This even happens in solutions that have a single project and no
external references and is causing me a major headache!

Anyone else had similiar problems?


4.Bug SQL script in VS IDE Ctrl + A Select All causes CRASH

Has anyone experienced this before. 

I have a web project/application. 
One of the files in this application is a SQL Script file. 
When I use Ctrl+A to select all of the text of the file
VS Net CRASHES horribly. 

The command window is raised and the "Error Reporting" 
application kicks in and VS Net is re started.

I do not get the error if I hold the shift and page down 
to select all the tex OR use the mouse to click + drag. 

Just Ctrl + A blows the damn thing to smithereens.

This is a major PITA. If anyone is listening.

This was happening in VS Net 02 and now it contiues in VS 
Net 2003


5.Breakpoint causes VS C# 2005 to crash

I am experiencing strange problems with Visual C# 2005 Professional.

I have been using the product for a while on my desktop pc, but
recently I got a new laptop, and I installed VS2005 on it. But when I
started debugging any application, VS and most of the windows UI hangs.
It can be a simple "Hello world" application - as soon as the debugger
hits a breakpoint, it will completely stop responding.

I can press CTRL+ALT+DEL a few times, an the task manager will pop up
after a while. But it will also be unresponsive.

The strange thing is that, when I went back to my desktop pc to use VS
- it did the exact same thing all of a sudden. So I'm thinking that
some Norton/Windows Update might be conflicting with VS.

Has anyone experienced similar problems? Is there a way to collect
information on why the crash occurs?

Thank you very much
