enable AnkhSVN in Visual Studio

For VS2012 (and probably others too)
Go to: Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Plug-In Selection
Then choose “AnkhSVN”

[solved] The project type is not supported by this installation

In my case (after upgrading Asp.Net MVC3 to Asp.Net MVC4 application)
The following ProjectTypeGuids solved the issue:

<ProjectTypeGuids>
{E3E379DF-F4C6-4180-9B81-6769533ABE47};
{349c5851-65df-11da-9384-00065b846f21};
{fae04ec0-301f-11d3-bf4b-00c04f79efbc}
</ProjectTypeGuids>

I believe they mean the followin (in the same order as above):

Asp.Net MVC 4
Web Application
C# project

Friendly Debug Display Info (DebuggerDisplay)

To show a friendly view of an object, use DebuggerDisplay:

namespace PasPlus.BusinessObjects.Core
{
    [Serializable]
    [DebuggerDisplay("{Forname,nq} {Surname,nq} (Patient_id: {Patient_id,nq})")]
    public partial class Patient : Bitlink.DataAccess.BusinessObject
    {
        internal Int64 patient_id; 
        public Int64 Patient_id
        {
            get { return patient_id; }
            set
            {
                patient_id = value;
                _data_access_isdirty = true;
            }
        }
...

 

the code:

[DebuggerDisplay("{Forname,nq} {Surname,nq} (Patient_id: {Patient_id,nq})")]

from the namespace:   System.Diagnostics

will replace the the following popup:

DebuggerDisplay_before

with a friendlier one:

DebuggerDisplay_after
