Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Update for Windows Vista

Yesterday, Microsoft released the Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Update for Windows Vista. The refresh promises an improved user experience for those developing under the Vista OS, building on the Visual Studio 2005 SP1 release targeted for Windows XP back in December.

In a Q&A on Microsoft's site, Microsoft Developer Division Chief Soma Somasegar offers additional detail about the new release and Vista. Among the nuggets is information on what was fixed with the SP1 Update for Windows Vista, including "significant issues around debugging and profiling, and around creating ASP.NET applications for IIS on the developer machine," Somasegar says. "We also wanted to improve the feedback that Visual Studio gives to developers when an error occurs on Windows Vista."
