        The function "Edit and continue" is a important Debug utility. We have uses this in our previous compiler VC6.0 over 15 years. It is a mystery to us, that the old compiler VC 6.0 have better debug utilities as the actual tool Visual Studio 2013. We suggest the implementation of 'Edit and Continue for C++' as sson as possible.

        Programmers who developing softwares for Windows Servers in C/C++ have no choice other than platform x64 because there's no x86 version since Win2008 R2.
        It means that without x64 E&C for C/C++, there's no E&C for them.
        I think this is an enough reason to consider supporting this feature seriously, isn't it?

        I develop application under Autocad 64bits. I really need the x64 edit and continue support in VS2013. Because of that I switch between Windows 32 to Windows 64 many times a day. Please add this.

        still missing it since i switched my application to 64bit.

        and i can't use 32bit for debugging because my application is based on AutoCAD.

        please support E&C for C++ under 64bit.

        I had heard about x64 edit and continue support in VS2013 and was so stoked to give it a try in our toolchain!
        Then I discovered it doesn't work with C++. Sigh. Please add this.

        And make sure adding a comment works: I have time and again added (in ANSI C) a comment (/* */ form) and been told that it was a change that Edit & Continue did not support:(

        I was excited to inform the "under Review" status change to the 30 or so developers struggling with this issue. Please have this implemented across all C++ variations(MFC, 11, Managed, ATL etc etc...)

      • B.B. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Status changed to 'Under Review'. Yes! Please MS, we have been asking for this on so many threads for so many years. For all the reasons already given + that dev environments should always stay ahead of the curve and not lag badly behind - please finally implement this.

        Everyone is Ok to say that too many hours are spent waiting for a C/C++ app to compile : adding edit and continue with C++/x64 is a one of the greatest productivity feature which will strengthen the Windows/Visual Studio choice.

        We are a lot of programmers hoping for it at Ubisoft... Come on Microsoft! Please do it!

        The most powerfull PLM system Siemens Unigraphics 9.0 have only 64 bit version. Developing applications for it without E&C is really big problem. Applications have is very complicated code and reqires a lot of debugging with E&C. I hope may years...

      • Péter FeketePéter Fekete commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's still missing in vc++ 2013. We are waiting for it for many-many years, sine we have swticthed from 32 bit to x64. Why not happens anything?

        Coooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeee oooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnn already! We are all familiar with dev cycles, and ******** manager requests. Just figure out a way. Right now I couldn't care less with environment I use (although I actually like VS2012), just give me E&C and that will change immediately!

      • Jan RiegerJan Rieger commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Our typical projects have the following properties:
        - x64
        - mixed mode cpp (cpp/cli)
        - source files lying on a network share
        Please make that also in this scenario edit and continue is working

        Love it that .Net now has E&C on x64. Unfortunately I spend most of my time in C++.

        Please support E&E for 64-bit C++. Our applications are now nearly exclusively 64-bit, so we absolutely need it!

        Sh.t... c.nt... !!! I just Bought VS2012 and wished I didn't.
        In what cave has MS been hiding since 2001? Seemless support for x64 has been asked for since VS2002, was anticipated in VS2003, would have been nice in VS2005, and we were dissapointed with VS2008... and then VS2010 simply lacked any innovation.... but we still took it seriously... somewhat... And now... VS2012.... It made me... "laugh".... because I simply ran out of other emotions to give a f.cking d.mn anymore.
        Seriously... I'm developing very intensive image manipulation stuff here.. Sheesh, it would be -really- nice if E&C would FINALLY work on x64... Like ever since... err... 10 years ago.
        So I'm currently developing using x86 libraries so that E&C works and then at the LAST moment moving on to a very(read: "too") long test protocol to get it all stable on x64 platforms. Please f.cking fix this?
        After all these years, VS2012 doesn't bring anything new to the table, except for a new design, that I can't imagine having any developers' support.
        So continuing, the style or "themes" of VS2012 s.ck f.cking .ss. Everything is gray/black (or black/gray using the other s.cky theme) and nothing stands out anymore. It all looks the f.cking same and now you need to squinch your eyes and really focus to see what the h.ll you're clicking on. I wish effort would have been shifted from creating some s.cky redesign and bloating up the IDE, that no one was asking for and, not to mention, introducing even more bugs especially with refactoring and TOO D.MN SLOW background error checking (which all used to be FINE in VS2005 and VS2008 BTW!), to in stead focus on broader functional support like x64 E&C, more thread-safe support/helper classes... and just completing the d.mn framework with tidy, neat classes to support everything the underlying OS supports. In other words: Stuff that developers care about. All the design cr.p might be nice for marketing folks and their followers, but developers just want their IDE to f.cking work without too much nagging and message boxes. No, we don't want a f.cking message box after pressing a keystroke when an exception was waiting to see where it needs to unwind to and then after dismissing the annoyance, jumping the current view BACK to where the exception occured is a plain simple pain in the .ss. I cannot imagine I'm the first one to bring this up. And to proceed with the rant: This has been an annoyance since VS2005... OR was it even before that?
        Conclusion: Get your priorities straight. Do you even use any of the VS products yourself, dear Microsoft? Shiiiiiiii...........t...!
