Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System is a new technology that brings the advanced features of Visual Studio .NET and the .NET Framework to applications built for Microsoft Office Word 2003 and Microsoft Office Excel 2003. Deploying solutions built with this technology requires that you understand how runtime security is enforced in managed applications and how to configure users' systems to run your solutions without introducing security holes.To promote that understanding, this article will demonstrate how to establish trust, explain policy considerations and permissions, and explain what trusted code is all about. Secure assembly deployment is also covered in detail.

Office 2003: Bring the Power of Visual Studio .NET to Business Solutions Built with Microsoft Office


Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System is a new technology that brings the advanced features of Visual Studio .NET and the .NET Framework to apps built on Microsoft Word 2003 and Excel 2003. Now you can use Visual Basic .NET and C# to write document-centric, managed code solutions that run in-process with Word 2003 or Excel 2003, taking advantage of the rich object models they expose. Along the way you get the benefits of the managed environment in which a fully compiled .NET-based application executes, including code access security.

Visual Studio: Microsoft should simplify producing quality software

I am looking at features of different versions of Visual Studio and I less and less understand how and why is the quality of software handled as fun of few seasoned professionals. Although Visual Studio is best development platform I have ever seen I really don't understand why Microsoft hates people who want to provide quality to their customers. Usually n00bs and start-ups start with minimum versions to get their work done. Many of them start with some version of Visual Studio Express or cheapest one of the full versions. These products have this far caused me hell load of problems because specially n00bs have no way how to control or measure the quality of their work. n00bs make also a lot of stupid mistakes and they need some way to rollback those mistakes. And don't forget how many other mistakes n00bs can make. Now let's put it all together and see how hard is for n00bs to get started their professional life on Visual Studio. No advanced debugging - there is IntelliTrace but not for guys who need it at first years almost every day. They have to waste their and their seniors time to get mysteries solved. I need IntelliTrace rarely because usually stack trace of Exception is enough for me. But I have seen n00bs who try to debug their applications using only message part of exceptions. IntelliTrace is only available with Visual Studio Ultimate. No versioning suppor

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 does not list all tables in database

When logging into SSMS 2008 to a SQL2008 database when I expand the tables in a database I only see a few tables listed.  I can login to the same instance with SSMS 2005 and all of the tables are there.  Is there a reason why this is this way?

I can do a select * from in a query window for any of the tables in the database via SSMS 2008 as well and it work fine.  It just does not display the tables.

Insufficient Memory to continue the execution of the program (Microsoft Visual Studio)


Since Upgrading to SSAS 2008, cannot explore Data or Browse cubes from Vista Untimate machine.

I am developing Cubes for Analysis and Data Mining in Microsoft Visual Studio. I am running Vista 64 Untimate on my PC with quad processors and 8G of memory.
Everything was working in SQL Server 2005 and Visual Studio 2005. When we upgraded to 2008 on the server, I can no longer browse the cubes that I create or explore the data in the tables that I am using. I get an insufficient memory to continue program execution message. I did some searching on the internet, and I think that it has something to do with how 2008 server and Vista use forms.
I have found the following detail on the load:
