Did you know that that you can flip between VS 2010 SP1 and VS 2012 with no problems?
Now why cant the SharePoint team get their bits together to be able to do this?
I bet I could bakuman episode 10 animepremium install Visual Studio 2003 on here with no problems even if msft has not tested.Well we do and we know how.I just want it to work.Now lets fire this thing.Figure: Looking good, now with no extra patch I will preform the miraculous feet of connecting to TFS 2012.Unlike the Server 2012 environment I dont need to Snapshot.I want to be able to reinstall my local computer quickly, and to get back up and running fast.Figure: Look no really long names forward compatibility update.The problem at hand is to create a VM with Visual Studio 2010, but running on Windows.
As I have mentioned before I run all of my heavy weight software in.
I run many apps on my local computer, but they are things like Outlook, Windows Live Writer, Camtasia, Snagit and Diablo as well as any coms apps I need.
Figure: Rigel is running Windows.
Now VMs can be slow, so I got me a faster system.
I even used to do that myself.
The exceptions I have are older OSs that dont support the faster boot model.Could you imagine of Office did not work on the new OS?I dont do upgrades as frankly its less painful to figure out how to bite the bullet and reinstall everything efficiently than to take the pain later of errors that I really dont know wither they are coz of the product or the beta versions.I will be using the VM to both work and demo with Visual Studio 2010 against any version of Team Foundation Server.I see many team using Visual Studio 2008 and even Visual Studio 2005 on Windows.I have a VM with TFS 2010 and my new one with TFS 2012.Dont be afraid of Windows 8 for Visual Studios sake just jump in and get going -Are you still deploying software to older OSs?
