What in detail is different between System and System (Enhanced) in the app compatibility options?
With System I see no real difference/improvement. With System (Enhanced), it is better, but here I have the issue, that I need to invalidate the window/entry on the other monitor otherwise the text looks ugly (3rd item):
Do you know if WPF applications will be able to take advantage of Per Monitor V2 improvements?
target your app for .net 4.6.2 and you have permonitor awareness by default :
WPF applications are now enabled for per-monitor DPI awareness. This improvement is critical for scenarios where multiple displays of varying DPI level are attached to a single machine. As all or part of a WPF application is transitioned between monitors, the expected behavior is for WPF to automatically match the DPI of the app to the screen. It now does.
- the most annoying part of Visual Studio is the UGLY UI since VS2012. SInce 2013 only a few icons have color again. Add the 2010 icons, not those blurry 16 color icons. That's the reason why my main system is still VS2012, here I have an addon to change the icons to VS2010 (https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/a36021f0-770a-4258-854e-724e9d12b8a6). Using vs2013/2015 causes a headage for me because of the ugly icons. those Flat, blurry 16 color icons are criminal assault .
- I would like to have a system for extension to allow me to skip an extension update and go back to an older version. Currently I always see the update but there is no way to hide itif I want this (similar to older WindowsUpdate dialog in Win7/8)
ms designer have no taste, so they replaced the glass ui with this 16 color monochrome crap in Windows 8 and made it even more worse in Windows 10. I use glass8.eu with the aero 8 Release preview theme:
nice to see that several features of Resharper now come to VS as inbox features.
The roaming manager is nice, but it misses a button to download all missing extensions. Going to a list of 30 extensions is a pain.
Will it be also possible to sync extension settings?
And the new streamlined installer is the best news for the next VS version. I always unselect unwanted features and was shocked when those options were removed (I think it was in 2010). I only need the desktop .net + EF tool but no azure and web tools.
I know FieldMedic (I've asked several questions via mail, but never got an answer), but several others never heard about it. But here I only see an Edge-Web-Apps profile, no XAML profile. Is UxAppPlatform the right one in fieldmedic->advanced?
Please do some shows about Windows 10 mobile (using ETW with fieldmedic and device portal, getting crash dumps on mobile devices), users ask this a lot on stackoverflow.
[18:43] Why is Data Deduplication only supported in Server Editions?
I completely disagree. Do a web search for duplicate detection tools. The users have a large need to detect/remove Dups. This is a Feature what every Windows (mobile, Desktop, Server, IoT) should include.
