  • Blog Post: How to get Enterprise Library 3.1 working in VS 2008

    Enterprise Library 3.1 was published for Visual Studio 2005. That is to say: the Guidance Packages and the integrated Configuration Tool were built to work with Visual Studio 2005. The rest of the library works against .NET 2.0 and continues to work with .NET 3.5 apps. We have done some work to get the...
  • Blog Post: The Answer to "Why do my keys stop working in Visual Studio 2005 ?"

    We have been using Visual Studio 2005 for a while. We seem to keep having this problem with keys not working all of a sudden. The other day I came across this post that has the reason. Now I did not think anything about it until peterpr started to complain and said he wrote some macro to unbind / rebind...
  • Blog Post: NUnit Converter V0.5

    NUnit convert V0.5 is out. We have been using it heavily to convert our tests to VSTS (which rocks!). BTW, don’t be scared we are going to try and ship the NUnit tests for EntLib, but they will be skewed for VSTS . Go get V0.5 here . Big thanks to Jim! Now playing: Rage Against the Machine...
  • Blog Post: Composite UI Application Block Training

    The Composite UI Application Block is a cool new Application Block coming in the Whidbey time frame. We are now sitting in the war room with the guys because we want to keep the consistency and quality high for you guys by making sure things work together and that the teams learn from each other. Eugenio...
  • Blog Post: Application Blocks on .NET Compact Framework

    Straight from Sandy : For any of you patterns & practices fans that have always wanted application blocks for devices, the p&p team worked with OpenNETCF to release a community version for the .NET Compact Framework. For the blocks, you can go to: http://wow.opennetcf.Borg/appblocks/ and...
  • Blog Post: Wojtek is Blogging!

    You don’t know Wojtek? Go read his blog . This guy is super smart (and quite amusing ). Now playing: Fuel - Hemorrhage (In My Hands)
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Team Developer - Undocumented feature in Unit Testing

    During my whirl-wind tour of Whidbey I am taking the ride using VSTD (there is a joke ther somewhere <STD>). Coming from NUnit / TDD.net and VS 2003, I was used to dealing with configuration through the configuration file myassembly.dll.config. Now that I am using the tests from VS and looking...
  • Blog Post: Packaging Design and Architecture Guidance for Visual Studio

    Now that I have your attention … Tom is going to be giving a new webcast on a new “deliverable” from our group. I highly recommend you go check it out. Sign up for the webcast here . Now playing: Queens of the Stone Age - Gonna Leave You
  • Blog Post: Little Know Component Model Gotcha with IDictionaryService

    I don’t know how many people in the world this gotcha will affect but I found it very interesting after a conversation with one of the devs internally so I thought I would share the information with those of you out there in the wild. When you host your own components in a designer or IServiceContainer...
  • Blog Post: Why is Clean Project not a first class citizen

    I know this seems trivial, but since my move to the .NET world in Visual Studio .NET (VS.NET), I sorely miss features from Visual C++ functionality. Now before I get to my point I want to give a little overview of how VS.NET works before getting to for those that don't know much about VS.NET. I will...
  • Blog Post: Another Non Admin Woe in Visual Studio

    Today I needed to run some unit tests in an admin console (thanks to Aaron ), so I fired up VS as admin and built the project and ran my tests. This was the first time I had built the project, so when I went back to loading VS as Non-Admin, I got an access denied when VS was trying to build the .resources...
  • Blog Post: Unit Testing Again...

    Looks like Jim Newkirk has put on his flame suit and headed out into the fire here on the unit testing debate. Since I work with Jim you can only imagine that I share his position.
  • Blog Post: To Unit Test or Not to Unit Test... which Visual Studio Version?

    Peter Provost has started a grass roots movement (aka petition) here to include Unit Testing in all the versions of Visual Studio. Now seeing that I am an Microsoft Employee, I feel I must put in my 2 cents to defend the position of only including this in Visual Studio Team System. Programming is hard...
