Microsoft sucks!

This is no revelation. But we M$ products at work, and one which I use quite a bit is Microsoft Visual Studio 2003 and Visual Source Safe. This morning, after compiling an application successfully, Visual Studio went bye-bye silently. No application exception, nothing in the event log. Nada. A reboot didn’t seem to fix the problem. I’ve narrowed down the problem to projects that are checked into Visual Source Safe. I can’t seem to open those projects, but projects that are not checked into revision control are accessible.

And yes, I checked the VSS server and I can get into that just fine.

This sucks becuase I was about to finish something up and get it published and check it off my list and move on to the next task. Now I’ve got to spend time I don’t have trying to figure out what the heck is going on!

UPDATE: It’s all working now, although it took a threat of setting my computer out to sea and praying for a hurricane to get it to cooperate. Incidentally, after I clicked the “Save Post” button on the initial post (when, in fact, I felt like screaming!), Tears For Fears, “Shout” came onto my iPod:

Shout, shout,
Let it all out.
These are the things
I can do without
Come on; I’m talking to you
Come on.

What a coincidence, eh?
