    I would like to dig deeper in this. Could you please contact me at ewald dot hofman at Microsoft dot com?

  • Compile errors with RTM headers:

    1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\include\stdlib.h(893): error C2733: '_FencName' : second C linkage of overloaded function not allowed

  • The bug is here:

    It should be _FuncName and not _FencName

    #define __DEFINE_CPP_OVERLOAD_STANDARD_FUNC_2_0(_ReturnType, _ReturnPolicy, _DeclSpec, _FuncName, _HType1, _HArg1, _HType2, _HArg2, _SalAttributeDst, _DstType, _Dst) \

  • cool, now only need to add an hex editor :O

  • Trying to install the standalone version on Server 2012 for some evaluation and running into problems.  The install gets close to the end then states:  Failed to start HealthService service.  The event log shows:

    The Microsoft Monitoring Agent service terminated with the following service-specific error:


    Not a very helpful message, anyone run into this?

  • Any plans to officially sanction and support CA on build servers without the need to install+license VS?

  • Are there opportunities to run load tests which are started from different geographical locations?

  • @Phil,

    Currently we only support running load tests from US. However, this item is on our product backlog and we'll enable running load tests from different geographical locations in the future.

  • What are the supported browsers and browser versions for this Utility?

  • I am using vs2010 and have had this issue for a while now. Removing the KB above resolved the issue. Thanks so much!

  • @Kent: We're exploring what it looks like for Code Analysis to generally be more portable, both for the rules we ship and for rules you may write on your own. This would help many scenarios, including running Code Analysis on build servers, though we have nothing to announce there quite yet.

  • Hi Terje!

    Thanks for good article. But I'm very concerned why Microsoft doesn't use grouping by namespaces, such as Reshareper and other runners?

    Why we need to mess or tests with custom attributes when mostly simple case is to use grouping by namespace?

  • Brad, any clue who owns the "Tasks" window? I'm using VS2013 RTM and am unable to load the windows. Get error:

    The component 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Debugger.Parallel.UI.ParallelTasksUI' does not have a resource identified by the URI '/Microsoft.VisualStudio.Debugger.Parallel;component/ui/paralleltasks/paralleltasksui.xaml'.

    A connect issue has been opened:


  • The same error here: The Microsoft Monitoring Agent service terminated with the following service-specific error:

    %%2164195395 - very intuitive :-D!

  • @Jack - we are tracking the issue in this bug: connect.microsoft.com/.../parallel-tasks-view-doesnt-open

    Please provide any further info there!
