Last night I accidentally pulled out the wrong power plugs, crashing my computer. For some reason this meant it wouldn’t start properly. I don’t quite get why that would mean it wouldn’t start as the hard disc didn’t fail, but none the less it wouldn’t : the computer would seemingly just hang and the keyboard was no longer responsive and its lights went out. The good news is that start-up offered a recovery, and that recovery fixed it and life is good again. The thing to be aware of though is the recovery boot seemed to be hung for a long long time ; I’m talking like 20 minutes or half an hour.
If this happens to you, just be patient: it worked for me :)
First the good news :
The February release of the Snippet Editor has now had 10,000 downloads !
Now for bug fix news:
There were a couple of issues with the paths per language. A problem with Express Editions of Visual Studio occurred due to partial entries in the registry I didn’t for-see. Initial design and testing was done with full versions of Visual Studio, but I want to ensure that it does work with the express versions, that’s why the tool is standalone not an add-in. So the good news is I have fixed those bugs (I think).
If you want those fixes you can use the original source from Feb and just download the updated products.vb file. I’ll probably look at rolling this up into a new release in the not to distant future.
Well if you mark your methods as being void from the outset …….
