Visual Studio 2005 Team System – Bugs and Annoyances (V) (with some fixes)

May 14, 2005 | Visual Studio ALM

And the start of another list.

  1. Enabling code coverage for a web service doesn’t use the new name of Code Analysis, it still says “Enable FxCop” (but when doing anything but web services, the checkbox is “Enable Code Analysis”
  2. When you run FxCop (Code Analysis), you get a list of errors and warnings in the Error List.  If you right-click -> Show Error Help, an error pops up that says “The operation could not be completed. Not implemented”.  Fix:  Use Google or MSN Search.  🙂
  3. When using FxCop for a web service, I couldn’t find a way to change the rules from warnings to errors, even though that process is trivial for DLLs and windows apps.
