    The link for the US does not appear to work.  It takes me to a resource not found page with search results.

  2. Sorry, the copy+paste truncated a few characters at the end. All URLs fixed and triple checked.

    Thanks for the catch.

    Visual Studio 2010 just lost about 60% of my interest.  IntelliTrace (aka Historical Debugging) is only available in the Ultimate edition.  I don’t even have to know how much Ultimate costs to know I’ll never run it.  I work at a small company and we just can’t justify the cost of those high-end version.

    Fortunately the Pro version still has the parallel debugging feature since that accounts for about 30% of my interest.
