  • Blog Post: Visual Studio 2013 Windows Store DirectX Templates

    With the release of Visual Studio 2013 one of the very cool new things that might easily go unnoticed is that new templates that have been provided for Window Store DirectX applications. Templates are an incredibly important thing to get right. For new developers or for veteran developers looking to...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace Web Requests

    IntelliTrace Web Requests Moving forward the Visual Studio team is committed to bringing new updates to Visual Studio on a much faster cadence than the usual release and service pack cycle. As part of our run up to this commitment we’ve used the Visual Studio 11 Beta period to add some new...
  • Blog Post: My IntelliTrace Introduction for Visual Studio Magazine

    I got a chance recently to write an article for Visual Studio Magazine providing an introduction to debugging with IntelliTrace. It just came out in the August print issue and the e-copy was just put up online here over the weekend. Check it out if you are looking for a basic introduction to IntelliTrace...
  • Blog Post: Shakeups in Visual Studio

    Sorry for the lack of posts for a while, we’ve had a few moderate changes in our development teams here in Visual Studio after shipping Visual Studio 2010. As it all shakes out, I’ve been moved from an IntelliTrace specific team to a Diagnostics UX team tasked with the user experience for...
  • Blog Post: IntelliTrace links

    IntelliTrace Links Currently our team is deep in the throes of MQ (Milestone Quality, essentially a chance to catch up on improving our own tooling, automation and build scenarios after a big release) so I’ve been a little short on time to post new blog articles. However I did have a few quick...
  • 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: 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: 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 in Visual Studio Magazine

    Visual Studio Magazine just posted an article online providing a little introduction to IntelliTrace from Jeff Levinson. Seemed worth a link if you are looking for another take on IntelliTrace and exciting from my end to see external content starting to get out there for the release of 2010. Ian Huff

  • 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 and Microsoft Test Manager

    One of our main goals with IntelliTrace was to help close down the “no repro” gap between developers and testers. It’s frustrating and a waste of time and resources to have testers and developers going back and forth with testers reporting issues and developers unable to repro and investigate those issues...

  • 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: 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: Pinpoint a performance issue using hotpath in Visual Studio 2008

    Analyzing a performance report When you first open a performance report in Visual Studio 90% of the time the question on your mind is “where is my program spending most of its time?” In Visual Studio 2005 the best way to find this was to move to the calltree view and from there to follow the execution...
