I started playing with it this week and got it mostly configured but haven't been able to track down one final configuration bug on my machine. It appears that he found a way to enable this, though, despite my ineptitude at getting it to work on my machine.
hey, I may help, what is the problem? are you running it on IIS 5/6 or on IIS7?
so... why one language in MS stack [VB.NET] can do it [background compilation] and another language which is very very different [C++] cant or doesn't do it
as for C# I think its more a "political" decision than a technical one, as for C++ its the compiler that compile the code and the C++ compiler does a lot more than C# or VB.NET compilers, its pretty obvious isnt?
that parallelization feature built in C++ compiler, do we will see it in C# compiler? IIRC C# compiler doesn't have it, msbuild have it...
