I have been in vacation for the last 2.5 weeks.

Myself and my Fiance in a vehicle driving around the united states.
We’ve done the popular route – San Francisco –> Los Angeles (Through Highway 1, Amazing!) –> Las Vegas

A lot of ruckus in that time (tech-wise), good vacation time 🙂 I came back and noticed I have got like 150 unread blog posts to which I’m subscribed to – crazy!

It will take some time until I get a grasp upon everything.

Anyway – Some new Hotfixes!!

1) Flase C# compilation errors for ASP.NET code-behind files in VS2008 SP1 (KB957259)

Read about it here.
Get it here.

NOTE: the hotfix will only install on an SP1 or higher version of Visual Studio or Visual Web Developer Express.

This hotfix addresses the following bugs:

  • If you have a breakpoint in a code-behind file.  On project open, you get incorrect errors in the Error List for that code-behind file (e.g. – button1 is not declared).  These errors do not go away until you open that code-behind file.  Once you open the code-behind file, the errors go away.
  • When you open a code-behind file, some false errors are shown in the Error List for a second or two and then go away.

  • 2) Rollup Hotfix for the WPF Designer in Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (KB958017)

    Read about it here.
    Get it here.

    NOTE: If you already have the latest version of the Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2008 SP1, you DO NOT need and should NOT install this hotfix. All of the fixes in the Hotfix package are already included in Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2008 SP1.

    This hotfix addresses the following bugs:

    • When a resource in an external resource dictionary is updated, Visual Studio 2008 crashes.
    • WPF Designer cannot load read-only attached properties, such as the VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups property.
    • If some data is bound locally, and then the data binding is cleared, WPF designer reports an error message  ‘System.Windows.Data.Binding’ is not a valid value for property
    • WPF Designer fails to load in VS.NET 2008 SP1 (RTM) if the startup project is set to a Win32 project
    • When you set and then delete the Source property of a WPF WebBrowser control, Visual Studio crashes.
    • When you move a control which is using the MultiTrigger class or the DataTrigger class in the Style class, WPF Designer may throw an InvalidCastException exception.
