Snippet Editor 2008 release
Tue, Nov 6 2007 21:49
I've updated the Snippet editor to work with Visual Studio 2008 and 2005 releases.
Note this release requires .NET 3.5.
- Added 2008 product range to the list of products
- Fixed replacement of the install root variable for Visual Studio that was resulting in a double \ midway of file paths
- Removed VB's single instancing and replaced it with named pipes messaging. This fixes various issues to do with firewalls, and the remoting VB tries to do. See Visual Studio Magazine November for details on the NamedPipes usage.
- Set the required permissions to run the application as Administrator for Vista. Without this, the app would run, but snippets would be saved in the VirtualStore where Visual Studio wouldn't see them properly. The problem revolves around Visual Studio having the snippet stores in the Program Files tree.
The download includes the source and the release build. (in the bin\release path)
UPDATE: The files are now available from my web site (http://billmccarthy.com/Projects/Snippet_Editor)
