Microsoft released Visual Studio 11 Beta just over a month ago, and we quickly ensured bleeding edge developers would have access to their favorite productivity tool, Telerik JustCode! So, what about the other Just products?
We wouldn’t dare leave our loyal JustMock and JustTrace users out of the fun. If you keep current with our internal builds (or service pack for JustTrace), you already have versions with Visual Studio 11 support! However, we only install our products into the versions of Visual Studio you selected. Since you probably installed the tools before VS11 came out, you may need to change your setup. Go to Control Panel, Programs, select either Telerik JustTrace or Telerik JustMock, and then click the Change button. The wizard will come up, and you will need to select the Change option again. This will take you to the Select Components to Install screen, where you can make the necessary modification.
Here’s a view of JustTrace in action from within Visual Studio 11!
Visual Studio 11 is still in beta, and you should expect some instability with it. Be sure to keep VS11 up-to-date with the most current patches. If a problem is blocking, you can always use the standalone JustTrace profiler and use JustMock outside of Visual Studio.
You may be wondering about our fourth product, JustDecompile? Since it doesn’t integrate with Visual Studio, there’s no problem. Just remember that when you install VS11, it will install the .NET Framework 4.5 in place over 4.0. To look inside the 4.5 framework, simply use Open, Load Framework, Load .NET 4.0 Assemblies. We’ve also tested JustDecompile in the Windows 8 Beta, and they get along fine with only a few minor issues.
Happy testing and profiling!
