MAY VS2005 (whidbey) MSDN


If you are playing with the May bits of Visual Studio 2005 (DO IT! i’s stuffed with many pleasant surprises, to say the least), you may stumble on some performance issues with the accompanying MSDN version.


Rob Caron provides a workaround that works like a charm:


>In “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\help whidbey\dexplore.exe.config” change the following lines:
>
>    <supportedRuntime version=”v2.0.40507” safemode=”true”/>
>    <requiredRuntime version=”v2.0.40507” safemode=”true”/>
>
>to:
>
>    <supportedRuntime version=”v2.0.40426” safemode=”true”/>
>    <requiredRuntime version=”v2.0.40426” safemode=”true”/>


thank you Rob 🙂

    I am tempted to get MSDN but can’t afford MSDN universal – do you know if whidbey or longhorn are available to mere msdn professional owners?

    Simon, AFAIK VS2005 CTP is available for MSDN Universal subscriber only (besides the standard alpha program and the bits handled during events). I could be wrong, anyway… if I’ll find something I’ll let you know.
