I just sow a grate video in YouTube regarding the Visual Studio features.
This is not an ordinary video of Visual Studio, I hope you like it…
You can watch the video here.
In the video you can see a 5 years old girl explaining about here experience with Visual Studio.
We have been dealing with a strange performance issue with TFS.
One of our users reported that he's facing terrible performance issues while working with TFS.Any source control operation takes a long time. Even exploring the source confrol folders causes Visual Studio to hang.Besides that - the client PC works great with any other application and any other network resource.We noticed that those TFS issues happen only in this specific PC, when working with Team explorer 2005 or with 2008, or while using msscci plugin for VB6.
Cleaning Visual studio cache did not solve the problem.
We solved the problem by creating a new...
Some times you like to create Pre or Post build events in your project and you don’t like it to be executed when doing a build using the automation build system, so what can you do?
There is a property called “SkipPostBuild” in the build’s targets file, setting it to true will only result with skipping the Team Build post events and not the project post event.
In order to skip the project pre/post build events do the following:
Step 1: Open the proj file of the project in notepad or any text or XML editor.
Step 2: Find the “PropertyGroup” holding the...
Today We had a situation that after installing TFS MSSCCI Plugin for Visual Studio 6, We open VB6 and There's no "Team Foundation" under Tools menu.Repairing the installation of the plugin did not help, neither did re-installing.The solution to this problem provided in Maor David's blog, by fixing the ini file of VB6 (c:\windows\vbaddin.ini)Here's the post: http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/maordavid/archive/2008/09/26/team-foundation-menu-doesn-t-exist-in-vb6-after-msscci-installation.aspx
I've been trying to figure out some issue: I choose TFS server (connect TFS server from VSTS),
I get servers ServerA and ServerB. I choose serverA and Team Explorer shows me serverA with serverB's team projects...
Furhermore, WITIMPORT /t serverA will import my XMLs to serverB !!!
(a workaround found was to delete tfs client cache: Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Team Foundation\1.0\Cache)
Is it possible? How?
Well, the problem was in the way the the second TFS server was created - by backing up the original TFS server data and restoring it to a different server. Both servers share tha same instance id !!!
Here's a synchronization problem between solution explorer (VSTS 2008) and source control:We have one solution file, containing all projects, and everybody's working with this solution.If we add a new/existing project to the solution and check in, then other programmers, who are currently working with the solution, will not get this update even if they perform get latest version from the solution explorer !It seems that "get latest version" operation on solution inside solution explorer does not refresh project list.Workaround: Go to windows explorer / source control explorer and re-open solution file.
Today I tried to solve a synchronization problem between VSTS 2008 and Team System, where cs projects contained folders and those folders do not exist in source control.Furthermore, The programmer tried to delete those zombie folders from the solution explorer and got error message claiming those folders do not exist.Well, They Don't, actually.
After handling this situation (by excluding zombie folder from project) I managed to recreate the problem:
In solution explorer, under any project, we add a new folder:The problem is that the only action pending is the update to the project file.No folder creation is pending in source control explorer !Then we...

Last week Microsoft and NESS organized a three days extreme learning. I was one of the lecturers and I talked about Unit testing, TDD, Load testing, Performance testing, Web testing in VSTS for Developers and Testers.
