On my work machine, I currently have VC 2003,2005,2008, and 2010 installed. Which one should the CPP/H file open in?
The right answer is obviously : whichever one is currently running.
And of course there's no way to do that.
Almost every day recently I've had a moment where I am working away in VC ver. A , and I double click some CPP file, and it doesn't pop up, and I'm like "WTF", and then I hear my disk grinding, and I'm like "oh nooes!" , and then the splash box pops up announcing VC ver. B ; thanks a lot guys, I'm really glad you started a new instance of your gargantuan hog of a program so that I could view one file.
Actually if I don't have a DevStudio currently running, then I'd like CPP/H to just open in notepad. Maybe I have to write my own tool to open CPP/H files. But even setting the file associations to point at my own tool is a nightmare. Maybe I have to write my own tool to set file associations. Grumble.
(for the record : I have 2008 for Xenon, 2005 is where I do most of my work, I keep 2003 to be able to build some old code that I haven't ported to 2005 templates yet, and 2010 to check it out for the future).
