Visual Studio Features

While working with Web Services in one of my projects, I got some compiler errors: The type of particular namespaces could not be found. Actually, I checked the line and it looked as the namespace – (a Web) reference was not found. However, in the Solution Explorer everything looked fine. If you click the namespace identifier which seems to be wrong, a smart tag appears which allows you to extend the namespace to it’s full identifier. And there you can see, why the compiler finds an error.

Reference Prefix

Cool feature if you know that it is there.

SVN Service

SVNService by Magnus Norddahl works great if you want to run subversion as a Win32 service. Just installing the service with

svnservice.exe -install -d -r c:\repository 

It seems to be confusing that the service is not started and set to manual, but the svn server is running, even after a reboot.
