Dev Luv: Visio Drawing Control In VS 2005 Beta 2

Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 has a bug that breaks debugging for WinForm applications that host the Visio 2003 Drawing Control. The problem is caused by the new VSHost process (more information can be found here is not possible to disable this hosting process in Whidbey Beta 1; however Beta 2 provides the option to turn it off. 

Before you debug a project that hosts the Visio Drawing Control, go into the project’s settings, select the Debug tab, and de-select “Enable the Visual Studio hosting process.” Here’s a screenshot for the setting.

Once you do that, you should be able to use the Visio drawing control in your VS 2005 winform.
