Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2008

I’ve now been using Windows 7 Beta since release to MSDN subscribers, and am pretty chuffed with it. The new Taskbar is a joy to use, and the whole thing is very stable 🙂

I’ve only one niggle with it and that is that when I’m trying to add 3rd party controls to Visual Studio via the browse assemblies dialog, VS2008 has a think, throws a silent fit and disappears. This doesnt happen when adding references.

Has anyone else had experience of this? I shall do some digging and see if I can isolate it a bit more 🙂

    Hi John,I’ve seen something like this, the difference being it was not with Windows 7. For me it was down to one of the references paths in the registry. I found that by going through and removing them one by one, that the path to one of the third party toolsets I had installed was causing the issue for me.Check the keys in HKLM/Software/Microsoft/.NETFramework/v2.0.50727/AssemblyFoldersEx and HKLM/Software/Microsoft/.NETFramework/AssemblyFolders

    This also blows up if you have the Power Commands For VS 2008 1.0 installed.
