|Visual studio issues after installing visual studio 2013|
In order to build windows 8 apps in visual studio 2013, you must be using
windows 8.1. (defined here). This is possibly the issue.
You also wouldn't see the windows sdk include path because the wdk would be
uninstalled. I would recommend one of two things
get visual studio 2012 again, and download the windows 8 sdk
get windows 8.1, then install visual studio 2013, and use the windows 8.1
I know, its quite silly.
|XNA for Visual Studio 2013|
XNA is no longer supported. Windows recommends MonoGame. This was actually
done a while ago. And I've never seen it included. For me with 2010
Ultimate it was a separate download.
[According to a leaked email]
"The XNA/DirectX expertise was created to recognize community leaders who
focused on XNA Game Studio and/or DirectX development. Presently the
XNA Game Studio is not in active development and DirectX is no longer
evolving as a technology. Given the status within each technology,
further value and engagement cannot be offered to the MVP community.
As a result, effective April 1, 2014 XNA/DirectX will be fully retired
from the MVP Award Program."
As others have commented, it may go well for you regardless of the above
facts. I wouldn't count on a "Previe

|Visual Studio 2013 - Source Not Available|
It means that at the time you hit Break the code being executed was from
some external library that you don't have the source for; most likely a
call to the base language library, of which you no doubt have lots of calls
to all over your application. If you did it often enough eventually you'll
happen to break at a point where no library call is executing (the specific

It is not possible. Visual Studio 2013 natively supports .Net v4.5, which
does not support Windows XP.
For .Net 4.0 on Windows XP, you may try to use Visual Studio 2010 with .Net
4.0. I am not sure if this will work, but I would suggest you to go for
Windows 7 for .Net 4.0 and Windows 8 for .Net 4.5.
|In Visual Studio 2013 / ASP.NET MVC 5, How do I add a new Controller?|
Updated this answer on Nov 14 2013, after the official VS2013 release to
reflect changes in the final release -ds
For Visual Studio 2013 (Released Version)
Note: The final release brought back the "Add Controller" context menu.

|How do you change your app icon in visual studio 2013?|
You might be confused because Visual Studio supports different languages,
and its UI is not consistent across those languages. Since you tagged it
C++, the "old" rules apply. An application icon is a so-called resource.
You have to provide an .ico file, and reference it in a .rc file. The
resource compiler (RC) compiles it into a .res file, and the linker then
adds it to the EXE.

|Best way to deploy visual studio 2013 project|
Your friends computer needs to have the VS 2013 redistributable packages
You can perhaps build an installer that either downloads these, or installs
them as part of your distribution. Or you can tell your "customers" to
download and install them from a suitable link.

|Visual Studio 2013 Preview Not Responding frequently|
RESOLVED! It was git causing the problem. I had a local repository set at
c:Projects which contained all my various project sub-folders. The debug
dump file I created for the VS programmers allowed them to narrow it down
to git. Removing the local repository fixed my performance issue where VS
2013 is at least usable now. The VS programming team still needs to resolve
the continuous re-parse of the folder though. Anyone with a very large
repository will end up with this issue.

|Is there a way to host my asp.net page through visual studio 2013 (globally)?|
your page cannot be "global" in the sense of everyone on the internet can
access it unless you deploy it to a machine for such tasks. I personally
deploy to Amazon Web Services, a small micro instance.
Now, if you would like to test to see how your information reacts, you can
write a script to interact with it, but i feel you are more or less wanting
to run your local host as a outward facing server and then ping it with
client requests of sorts.
Any wya you look at it, get a domain name. Determine if you are going to
host it, with port forwarding (i dont reccomend it unless you have good
internet and dedicated machines) or using Amazons WebServices and Cloud
processing as a deploy point.
|Develop Sharepoint 2013 365 Workflow in Visual Studio|
According to this article it's possible, though probably not really nice.
You will have to deploy your Workflow as a SharePoint App. Which means you
will only be able to call the webservices.
Another option which might be worth looking at is Nintex, which has a
module for office 365 as well.
Nintex has alot of useful functions, though I don't know how good the
office 365 version is.
You would have to check whether it suits your requirements.
|What is the difference between msvcr120.dll and msvcr120_app.dll in Visual Studio 2013?|
In Visual Studio 2013, the C++ Runtime DLLs used for Desktop apps are
different from those used for Windows Store apps.
Desktop apps use the runtime DLLs named such as msvcr120.dll, msvcp120.dll,
vcamp120.dll, vcomp120.dll, vccorlib120.dll and so on. Binaries built
using the C++ Libs located in “$(VCInstallDir)lib" have a dependency on
Store apps use the runtime DLLs names such as msvcr120_app.dll,
msvcp120_app.dll, vcamp120_app.dll, vcomp120_app.dll and
vccorlib120_app.dll. Binaries built using the C++ Libs located in
“$(VCInstallDir)libstore" have a dependency on these DLLs.
The primary difference is that the Store DLLs (those with _app in their
names) have been implemented entirely using the Windows API available for
Store apps. This can be verified by running "d
|Visual Studio 2012 / 2013 Syntax Highlighting errors|
I can't offer a solution to this issue, but I can tell you that it's an
issue that's plagued Microsoft Visual Studio 2012. In VS2010, the
highlighting was fairly basic for C++, as you couldn't set the colouring on
user types and loads of other things.
In VS2010, like you I had no problem with the syntax highlighting at all,
but there was a lot less that you could actually highlight. Ever since
they introduced this extra highlighting for C++ so you could colour a lot
more items, it's been very buggy.
At the moment, I've got operators in all sorts of colours, matching
brackets and braces in different colours and half-coloured qualifiers etc.
I've just had to live with it... but if you're reading this MS, please...
PLEASE... pretty please get it fixed.
|In Visual Studio 2012/2013 is there any way to filter out CodeReview shelvesets?|

The problem is that many Subversion servers don't listen to ipv6

You need to add the section

they are and all other symbol names should be obfuscated.

If you are using the Default Membership that come's with the ASP.NET

The new model you are talking about is ClaimsPrincipal. The unique
difference is this Claims Based Secury, that is completly compatible with
the older versions but more powerfull.

I guess I'll answer my own question. After submitting a bug report HERE,

Mr. Sutter said that main reason for such a delay in implementing C++11

Clang supports since version 3.0

Unfortunately the issue seems to present in VS 2013 as well - I've had a
similar issue with VS2013 + ReSharper v8.0.2 and intellisense in CSS.
Using VS 2012 + ReSharper 8.0.2 on the same solution is fine.
My issue mainly seems to stem from the fact that I'm working on an ExtJS
solution (which adds hundreds of .js & .css files) and VS 2013 seems to
fall over with this.
You're already using VS2012 here - is the issue present with ReSharper

then it's something else. Check all other extensions you may have installed
and try disabling them.
