Support debugging of C++ code with IntelliTrace

As a C++ developer I am always sad when seeing cool features only available for C#, VB, ... e.g. IntelliTrace would be really useful to get rid of these invisible, hidden, and not reproducable errors.

        The VMware idea seems to support 2005 and 2008. Not sure I want to use such an old version, but it could be one way to at least get some functionality of historical debugging.

        On the other hand, running something in a VMWare VM or any VM definitely changes the timing, so I cannot get behind the idea that the replay debugging can take the place of the standalone collector, and I certainly cannot get behind the idea of using the VMWare replay debugging in any instance requires any graphics intensive application.

        Why hasn't this gotten more support? Someone with a blog needs to post the link to this idea so developers will know about it and can vote if they want.

        Yes, Yes, Yes!

        C++ is a viable platform, and probably more in need of good debugging tools than some of the other languages.

        As an ole time programmer, I am used to a certain level of debugging support from any compiler manufacturer. Frankly, Microsoft is not rising to the level of its predecessors.

        A trace log of program execution has been a basic version 1 feature in compilers since 1966. And now, with Visual Studio 2013, supposedly the best compiler on the market, this basic feature is not included? Why?

        This does not speak well of Microsoft.

        code for implementing efficient deltas, faster and more efficient than xdelta. IDK how it compared to MS's own stuff.
