One of those days…

What did we do before Google. Having upgraded to Vista a while back (hey, I like shiny new things) I decided to get my VS 2005 up to date on the box so that I could do some development. For any of you thinking of pushing down this route there are two key steps: 1) Install Visual Studio 2005 SP1 2) Install Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Update for for Windows Vista

If you do not want to have to be reminded to run VS 2005 as an administrator every time, you can check the box to avoid being reminded ever again. In that case right-click the shortcut you use to launch VS 2005, select properties, and on the compatibility tab select the option to run as administrator.

If you are doing web development you probably want to read Mike Volodarksy’s articles on debugging on Vista and working with IIS7

For some reason CodeRush gave me grief as well today. It just stopped appearing on the add-in list on Vista. Fortunately Rick Strahl’s fix seemed to correct that problem for me. Good job, I feel hamstrung without CodeRush nowadays.
