Need your feedback on Visual Studio 2010


Do you use Visual Studio 2010 everyday? If so, I’d really appreciate it if you could take 5-10 minutes and fill out the following questions found in this survey:

We’re really trying to get as much feedback as we can in regards to overall performance and stability of the application. As you already know, we take the quality of Visual Studio very seriously, and your feedback is a key ingredient in how we tune our efforts to ensuring that quality.

Thanks in advance!

    Way too often VS2010 starts up painfully slow – waiting for it is painful waste of time.

    Too often, without changing anything in the code of a project, it gets munged up creating errors that should not be there. To eliminate the errors and get back to the way it was requires repeated cycles of "clean", "shut down & start up" and maybe a few sacrifices to the great Juju of Code, and then sometimes a full reboot of the machine just for good measure…

  2. Thanks for the feedback. I'd love to get more details from you in order to make this feedback more actionable.

    What types of projects are you working with?

    thanks, Cameron

    Well my friend, what about the support of Business Intelligence Projects. (read here: social.msdn.microsoft.com/…/f0d778b3-44ec-4768-969f-c00891ac4e93) I rolled back to Visual Studio 2008 because this is simply 1000% unacceptable and a very good example why there are so many people out there hating Microsoft. I can really understand them, because I got so extremely upset and pissed when I realized this after installation. You are doing all these polls, but you lack minimal basic understanding of clients needs. I refuse to fill out these surveys until these basic things are fixed.

    Another major thing is the help system, just read the comments here: msdn.microsoft.com/…/dd831853.aspx. We have now the year 2010 and this is not the first release of Visual Studio, but when I read "we take the quality of Visual Studio very seriously" and then read all these comments of those very, very frustrated users, then I do not know if I should cry or laugh.

    I would like to know that test automation is possible in VSTM 2008.

  5. @mobilop I hear you on the BI Studio problem. I don't know the exact status on when that will be corrected, but I'll ping a few folks. In regards to the help system problem, that I know we are addressing in the very near term, so hang in there just a little longer! I've seen latest builds of the new help system and I believe many of those issues will be corrected. Certainly not all, but most. 🙂

    @Dev Chamina – What type of test automation are you referring to? Most of the automation ( such as Coded UI tests, recorded test steps and replay, the test case management system built into TFS ) are all part of VS2010, not 2008. But if there is something else you are referring to, let me know.

    Seems like only people with complaints take the time to write something here.  I just wanted to say I think Visual Studion 2010, TFS 2010 is an awesome development platform and you can tell there was a lot of time and effort put into this.  Maybe 1 or 2 things had problems or were missed.  But hey, those throughing stones, how big is your product list?  I can't imagine the list this team has to go through.  There has to be a balance between perfection and time to market.  I think they have done a great job and have made a huge step forward.  

    Congrats!

    Hey Cameron, I love the new features in the Visualization and Modeling pack, however when I drag classes on to the diagram designer they don't seem to show dependencies. They show inheritance and interface implementation but not dependencies. The dependency graphs show the dependencies but the UML class diagrams do not seem to show them. Is this a feature that just hasn't been implemented or am i just missing som configuration setting to show them?

    Thanks,

    George

  8. @Dukesta ( George ), we chose not to show the dependencies as we feared it would clutter the graph to the point where it would degrade the overall meaning of the graph. As you pointed out, the DGML graphs is where we spent the majority of time and energy on the dependency side of the house, but do agree with you that having control over dependencies on the UML class diagrams is something we need to provide control over.

    thanks for the feedback on this George.
