Making VisualStudio 2003 run on Vista
Posted on:October 30 2007
Visual Studio 2003 doesn't work correctly on Vista: It would crash every now and then. Instead of patching this, Microsoft obviously decided to show a message box with text like 'This program is known to cause problems in Vista jadajadaja'. If you open the Find/Replace dialog in VisualStudio 2003, it will crash nearly always, for example. A simple workaround is to disable the Aero Window manager in Vista: Visual Studio will then run like a charm, even (or maybe especially) without SP1 applied.
Which makes me wonder: What the hell are they doing in that Find/Replace dialog? Or what is Aero doing behind the scenes at that piece of code? Very strange.
