Support for development IDEs on Vista

Tue, September 26, 2006, 01:36 PM under Windows | Vista
I am never happy when I learn about Microsoft things after they have hit the public (I thought one of the perks of working here is that I get to hear about these things in advance). Anyway, that is probably (if not definitely!) my fault.

* So the good news is that VB6 is basically supported on Vista from both an IDE and a runtime perspective. I didn’t know that probably because I don’t have a personal interest, but no doubt good news for those still in that world.

* We have now opened up a Beta release of SP1 for VS2005 (I knew about this one). This will not address all VS2005 issues on Vista (I didn’t know that, but admittedly, the issues are minor).

* The big news however for many of you and I am sure this will be discussed widely over the next few days: Visual Studio .NET 2002 and VS.NET 2003 will not be supported on Windows Vista.

Feel free to discuss these here.
