Visual Studio Hacks

Visual Studio Links #62

by dstokes on August 7, 2008

My latest in a series of the weekly, or more often, summary of interesting links I come across related to Visual Studio.

Whole Tomato Software and Fog Creek have teamed up on Source Links.  Source links is a free Visual Studio extension that turns file comments into hyper-links to FogBugz.

Greg Duncan posted a link to the release of the Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server MSSCCI Provider version 2.1.

Sara Ford’s Tip of the Day #275 covers examining the exception object from the exception assistant.

DiveDeeper’s blog continues the LearnVSXNow! series with VSXtraCommands Part 2 – Commands removing recent items.

Sasha Goldshtein posted the Native Debugging Walk-Though Set he put together for a presentation he gave on C++ debugging techniques.

Jonathan Wood has created a new video – How Do I:  Use the Visual C++ 2008 Feature Pack?  Part 3:  Creating Visual Studio-Style Applications.

Peter Chen updated his Linkify Add-in for Visual Studio and the accompanying article on Code Project.  Linkify is an add-in that allows the user to create search criteria for source code comments that allows for the launch of website, documentation wikis, and any other thing that a ShellExecute call can do.

Greg Duncan posted a link to the announcement that SQL Server 2008 RTM is available on the MSDN download site.  There is also a SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack and it looks like everyone will want that as well.  Be careful about installing this on your developer workstation boxes with Visual Studio 2008 RTM installed.  SQL Server 2008 Requires/Installs .Net 3.5 SP1 and Visual Studio 2008 RTM “may not work correctly after you install SQL Server 2008″.
