Visual Studio Questions

Visual Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE), a software application created by Microsoft to provide comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for the development of software. If a language specific service is installed, Visual Studio can support almost any programming language in varying degrees. These languages include Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual C++, Javascript and Visual F#. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to Visual Studio that has been answered by the Experts.

Can anyone suggest a good book or an effective on-line training source on Visual Basic.NET 2010? I would also need some resource on C# language.

To begin with, you can refer to the book “Beginning C# 3.0: An Introduction to Object Oriented Programming” by Jack Purdum. This book is published by the Wrox press and several readers have read this book. However, since this book is written by a professor, you would find examples that you could expect only from a teacher. In this case, many readers would probably not try to learn OOP from a VB book as they would want something that would be similar to Java and other types of C languages. But in the long run, this book would help you a lot. Before you start reading upon VB.NET, you would need to have the concepts grounded in C# language from an OOP perspective. You would find much more reference materials on C# language. Since there are not many good and useful online training courses, you can read about a concept and then research it online for many relevant examples.

Where can someone find “Step Into” on the Debug Menu of the Visual Studio 2010 service pack 1?

In this case, it seems likely that someone or possibly you must have disabled the command unknowingly. Therefore, you may try the following steps. First you would have to select the tools, customize the menu options and then switch to the Commands tab in the Customize dialog. Then you would need to make sure that you select the “Menu Bar” radio button and the “Debug” item in the combo box which is to the right of the Menu Bar button. Once you have selected the “Debug” item, you would be able to view the commands available in the Debug menu in the "Controls" box. Then you would need to scroll down to see the different “Step” commands. However, it is most likely that you would not find the command “Step Into” there like you have mentioned. You should then click on the “Add Command” button in the next dialog and select the “Debug” Category. Finally, you would find the “Step Into” command after you have scrolled down to the “Commands” list. You would need to select the command and click OK.

I want to extend the Visual Studio 2010 trial but I am not able to do it?

In this situation, you could visit the Visual Studio website and click on the help menu there. Then you would need to go to the ‘Register Product’ option and click on it. Once you have clicked on that option you would get a registration key online. Then you would have to enter the information that is requested along with your Windows Live ID. They would provide you with a registration key to your Windows Live account, which you would need to enter. Finally, you would have to click the ‘Register Now’ option. However, if this procedure fails to perform, you would need to make a call to the Microsoft Volume Licensing center on 1-800-426-9400 and speak directly to one of the Licensing specialists. They would be able to provide you with a registration key that should resolve this issue.

Visual Studio is a set of software development tools optimized for team-based design. It intends to create powerful and high performance applications. However, there are many editions of Visual Studio and each edition has been developed in a way that would meet not only the requirements and size of the specific teams but also would tailor to the roles of individual team members. If you need clarification about your specific situation with respect to issues related to Visual Studio, you may ask a computer Expert to evaluate your case details and provide a technical insight.
