The Zen Of Programming

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/27

From The Zen Of Programming:

The novice thought for a moment. “I will design a new editing program,” he said, “a program that will replace all these others.”

There are different forms of the above.

Think about them for a while.

Then name at least three.

Now go back to work.

Batch file: Finds the location of xsd.exe by running the vsvars32.bat of the youngest installed Visual Studio

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/12

Boy, Microsoft made it hard to find the location of xsd.exe!

It is actually located like here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.1A\bin\NETFX 4.5.1 Tools\xsd.exe

But that is nowhere on the default path, nor in the registry.

What happens during installation of Visual Studio and/or the Microsoft SDK, is that the vsvars32.bat file of Visual Studio is updated so it can add the location of many tools (including xsd.exe) to the PATH.

So the trick is to find the youngest Visual Studio first, then run the according vsvars32.bat, and then xsd.exe is on the path.

Allow tests to be grouped by class, category, and namespace in Test Explorer – Customer Feedback for Microsoft

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/07

Usually I setup the grouping and filtering of the Test Explorer like this:

I really wish there was a multi-level grouping possibility here (:

Finding the path of xsd.exe from your Visual Studio Build Events

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/05

I wrote about the xsd.exe tool before to generate XSD from XML:

But it is much more than that, as it is a great way of generating .NET (not only C# and VB.NET code) from XSD files:

Long ago, xsd.exe used to come as part of Visual Studio, but now it is installed with the various Microsoft Windows SDK versions (of which some are downloadable) which makes it harder to locate on your system.

The really bad thing is that Visual Studio cannot find XSD.exe as part of your project Build Events, as the PATH has not been set up correctly.

Starting xsd.exe from a Visual Studio Build Events

In my hunt for the xsd.exe location, I started with a small batch file to find the xsd.exe locations from the registry:

I already liked the 7 minute C#6 video from last year. This is even better.
