As someone who believes in comments and referencing other code in them, I want completion to work while typing comments and rename to at least offer textual matches for my approval when renaming, which are almost always correct due to good naming.6 votes
VS2012 Update 3 requires the PC be updated when complete. Given that this is 2013, and MS was bragging about getting restart scenarios down to something like 5 back when Win2K was released, it seems like high time that non-kernel updates - particularly user level applications - should not require the entire system be restarted. I just can't believe that we're *still* having to do this; 10 years ago, I'd have put money on MS being able to dynamically restart the *kernel* without a reboot by now!6 votes
F5 debug/deploy should be able to install my application to a remote PC or virtual machine, that is running the same or a different version of Windows. Much like F5 debug/deploy for Phone can deploy my app onto the phone device or emulator ahead of running. And just like it can deploy apps to Windows Azure.
For virtual machines, Visual Studio should interface with popular machine monitors such as Hyper-V and VMWare, so it can launch and provision a VM instance, not just connect to an already-running VM.6 votes
Add an option to use pre/post deployment scripts in SQL Server Data Tools' Schema Compare Generate Scripts function.
After a schema compare is performed, I would like to be able to click the generate script button and have the script to include the pre and post deploy scripts included in the output. (Much like how a full publish works.)6 votes
Be able to search for options analogously to what the new version of VS2011 is supposed to be able to do with commands.
There are so many options in the Tools|Options dialog that it's very easy to forget exactly where you found a given option earlier. It would be nice if we could search for options in the Options dialog, along the lines what the beta of VS2011 is supposed to have with searching for commands.6 votes
I hit this problem when ported Intel SSE2 code into NEON. Real View compiler intrinsics (which you must have based on) have no support for the VSWP instruction (swap contents of two registers), and neither has the MSVC compiler. Thus, to swap the upper and lower doublewords of a quad, one has to use get-hi + get-lo + compine, or a complex table lookup, or something else equally ugly. I think computationally-intensive Windows Phone targeted code could benefit from explicit half-word access a lot. Just add an extra __m64 hilo field to the __m128 union and make sure that const indexed accesses to it compile to D-something register access; and support VSWP as a Microsoft extension.

Isn't it about time Microsoft provided a solution to handle automation of Office applications without the need to use Interop (PIA). I am left using VB6 for applications as the performance of automation using Interop is so poor. If these applications can not have a managed interface, bring back VB6!6 votes
Current, opening an attachment in TFS launches a web browser which then downloads the file.
Depending on which browser you are using you may have to
a) log in to TFS again
b) save the file somewhere
c) open the file
It would be much nicer to open the attachment directly from the context menu for the attachment - probably by asking the Windows Shell to open the file.6 votes
The Visual Studio C++ compiler provides a compiler intrinsic for 64-bit x 64-bit -> 128-bit result, but there is no intrinsic for the 128-bit/64-bit -> 64-bit result IDIV operation. This significant affects performance of algorithms using 128-bit integers.6 votes
I'm using ConEmu (and previously Console2) as consoles. It would be great if one could instruct VS to start those instead of standard Windows console when running console applications.6 votes

In VS2008 Isolated Shell, the auto recover option is available. However, in VS2010 the auto recover is disabled (greyed out). Can you please re-enable this IDE feature for the Isolated Shell?6 votes

I use a custom task that leverages git.exe to commit build artifacts to a deployment channel. However, Team Foundation Service, while accepting git repositories, does not appear to make git.exe available to custom tasks. Can this be changed?6 votes
I would appreciate a way to inspect control styles and properties and runtime. All modern browsers have some developer tool which allows inspecting rendered page, showing which element is under cursor, what classes/attributes/styles it has and what are the current values for everything. It would be great if XAML had something similar. It's quite hard to find out e.g. "why there is this 5px spacing between these two things on this form".6 votes
If you open the menu item File->Source Control->Find In Source Control->Changesets... (you must be in Source Control Explorer for this to be available). This will open the Find Changesets dialog. You can then search for change sets by date on a given source folder but not have any button for export result in dialogs.
Please make additinal export button in dialog that I attach here.6 votes
clickonce should be able to harvest query string parameters also from browsers other than Internet Explorer
Currently ClickOnce can harvest url parameters only for I.E this approache is passe . no developer can allow himself to deploy an app that it's functionality is limited only for I.E
usage : http://localhost/publisher/WindowsFormsApplication1.application?username=joeuser
this code works only for I.E
private NameValueCollection GetQueryStringParameters()
NameValueCollection nameValueTable = new NameValueCollection();
string queryString = ApplicationDeployment.CurrentDeployment.ActivationUri.Query;
nameValueTable = HttpUtility.ParseQueryString(queryString);
Allow native inclusion of Test Cases on the Sprint "Board" so that you can have this with the MS Hosted TFService.
On the "Board" feature of the Microsoft Hosted TFS, it should allow Test cases to automatically show up on the Board, as this is used to track the progress of the sprint team, as Testers are an integral part of the sprint team their work should be as visible as the developers so that all stakeholders can see the testing progress as well as the development progress to give a truer reflection of the state of play.6 votes
We manage many projects with the TFS 2013. Now we want to differ between these projects in the web frontend of the TFS by different background colors (e.g. in the title bar per team project and/or board).
It would be very helpful if you can implement some customizing capabilities!6 votes
