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.

I hope EMBT is paying attention.

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

Coding Kata videos: Bowling game

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/22

A long and shorter while ago, I wrote about practicing your coding and test driven development skills:

Here are some Coding Kata videos of the Bowling Game Kata in various languages and environments. Some of them are dumb (no audio) just like good practice usually is. Note: it helps to know a bit about 10 Pin Bowling Scoring rules.

And since I want to learn Haskell and have done a lot of Tic-Tac-Toe demos inthe past:

Marking code as obsolete/deprecated in C# and Delphi

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/07

During any software life cycle, you will want to phase out some code, and most likely want to mark code to be phased out in the future.

So here are two examples on how to do that in C# and in Delphi that just shows the effects of obsoleting/deprecating code.

Developer Assistant for Visual Studio with access to millions of code samples- via: Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/02

I’m going to experiment with this. Most likely the quality of the code samples will be the biggest factor in like/dislike result.

Visual Studio – Google+.
