  • Blog Post: SP1 Beta 1 out (64-bit and Sharepoint support for IntelliTrace)

    Not much new stuff to write about, as our next version plans are still being kept pretty close to our chest. But I did want to mention that the Beta for Visual Studio 2010 is out now and includes support for both 64-bit IntelliTrace and IntelliTrace for Sharepoint applications. Both big items that I...
  • Blog Post: Pinnable DataTips

    A rare non-IntelliTrace focused blog entry for me. But I really don’t see much talk from customers about pinnable datatips and since these little buggers are one of my favorite new additions to the Visual Studio 2010 debugger I figured they could use a little love. In Visual Studio 2010 we’ve done...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace on 64-bit apps using Microsoft Test Manager

    From lots (and I do mean lots ) of customer tweets and comments we know that folks are unhappy with IntelliTrace not working with 64-bit applications. We knew that this was going to be an issue for many customers, but due to time constraints we just weren’t able to get all the kinks in 64-bit F5 ironed...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace – What we collect

    When introducing a new feature like IntelliTrace you’re bound to get a lot of incorrect information floating around about exactly what the feature is and how it works. In particular with IntelliTrace I see lots of confusion about exactly what data is collected by IntelliTrace while running. While I’ve...
  • Blog Post: Creating custom IntelliTrace events

    If you've read into IntelliTrace events at all you've probably seen the potential in writing your own customer events to log debugging data at specific trouble points in your own code, as opposed to just using the events that are predefined in the .NET Framework. Sadly in the Visual Studio 2010...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace Tales #1

    Currently here at Microsoft (on the diagnostics team in particular ;) ) many of us are using IntelliTrace in our own day to day debugging work. This dogfooding process is a big part of Microsoft culture and something that we really need to keep growing IntelliTrace in the years ahead. As a way of showing...
  • Blog Post: Navigating your source code with IntelliTrace debugging

    If you’ve looked at previous articles on IntelliTrace you’ll have noticed that IntelliTrace has two main modes that it can run under. In the default mode IntelliTrace will just be collecting debugging data at the predefined IntelliTrace event points. While in the “methods and calls” mode IntelliTrace...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace and CollectionPlan.xml

    Even if you’ve already spent some time getting familiar with IntelliTrace (our new debugger logging feature in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate ) and playing around with some of the advanced options you might not be aware of the CollectionPlan.xml file and how important it is to controlling IntelliTrace....
  • Blog Post: A Quick Tour of IntelliTrace Options

    I’m the type of guy that when I fire up a new PC game my first stop before I even start playing is the options menu. I like to tweak things to my liking and even if I leave everything at default I like to know what options are there. If you have the same personality type then when you break out your...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace iTrace Files

    If you are not familiar with the new IntelliTrace feature in Visual Studio Team System 2010 than you might want to first check out either my or John Robbins’ introductions to this feature as a general overview of IntelliTrace would be helpful before digging into this article. What is an iTrace file...
  • Blog Post: Adios Historical Debugging. Hello IntelliTrace.

    It’s been a little while since I’ve gotten a post up here due in part to two main reasons. First off, we’ve been pushing really hard as a dev team in getting Beta 2 polished up and out the door. And secondly, the actual name of our feature has been in flux for a little while and I wanted that to be sorted...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace Events

    IntelliTrace Events (edited 1/27/2010 to update branding from Diagnostic Event to IntelliTrace Event) If this post is the first time that you have heard about the IntelliTrace feature in Visual Studio Team System 2010 , then you might want to first take a look at my little overview of this nifty...
  • Blog Post: Back To Blogging

    Back to Blogging So for the last 18 months or so there has been nary a peep on this blog about anything. One contributing factor to this extended period of silence would happen to be the fact that I now have an 18 month old daughter and I was feeling a bit of a time crunch. But the actual big reason...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate

    IntelliTrace in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate What is IntelliTrace in a nutshell? If you’ve been in the development world for any length of time you’ve probably ended up in a situation like one of the following more than a few times. · You’ve received reports of a crash from a tester, but on your...
