Will update 2 update the ugly ui?
dear i am a student and i know to use C++ in dew....i have no experience at visual level.... on the basis of c++ to what extent i can learn programing in visal...can i learn programing by self study and by watching tutorials.
You are the perfect candidate, for C#, or VB. Run away from C++. There's is no visual. With C# you get designers, and best of all, garbage collection running all the time. You will have a lot of garbage, so this a good thing.
.ts (TypeScript) extension is not supported for class view. Like .vb or .cs
You must implement a full-featured support of Win32 API on ARM devices. So, many old good trusted applications would work on Windows RT without any changes.
IMHO, internet browsing and sensitive user's data must be protected on hardware level, using separate core, but not with easy-to-break metro toys.
The requirement to get a digital key using internet connection, in order to deploy just a simple metro app is really strange. You must simplify the life of developer as much as possible. Please, do not create artificial obstacles.
Please, add the Smooth Cursor to the Visual Studio 2012
Does the VS team plan to support Windows RT? The only reason I haven't purchased an RT is because I can't use it as development machine.
Keep up the good work :)
Currently uninstalling VS 2012 Express and switching to MonoDevelop because I'm sick of this registration crap. After spending an hour trying to get the password reset to "take" for my Windows Live login I'm confronted by a registration page. Registering is one thing, asking a whole page of my work details, including a required office phone is quite another.
Dear Visual Studio Team,
It's a bit late and I'm not sure if anyone here still reads this, but I wanted to make you aware of the fact that VSUpdate 1 does not contain localized versions of the Entity Framework Designer (EFTools) although it is labled as "multi-language". I've tested it with the german RTM version of VS2012, which originally does contain a german version of EFTools. As soon as I install Update 1, the Designer becomes English.
It's not a big problem, but caused some confusion. Is this a mistake and do you plan to resolve this with Update 2? Thanks!
We use YOUR RemoteApp connect to internet, so we can download only,
we can not run EXE on the RemoteApp server.
In RemoteApp, I use IE menu file-save as, goto c:\windows\system32,
then type file name "cmd.exe*",
open the cmd.exe to run the exe with /layout parameter, download the 1 G files.
