Using VS2012


#1

I’ve been using VS2010 but would like to move to 2012 soon.

I noticed this section in the SDK change log:
"Debugging on VS2012 is slower than on VS2010 when not using the WinUSB drivers"
https://www.ghielectronics.com/support/.net-micro-framework/sdk/4/netmf-and-gadgeteer-package-2013-r2

So, what are the WinUSB drivers, and what drivers are used if not them?

Anyone having success with VS2012 + Gadgeteer? Awesome experience, or should I stick with VS2010?

Yep, works great. I got myself up and running with VS2012, finally.

Note to others:
If opening/using existing projects, please note that your old project files are junk, wont work. Modules and device versions in the project file wont update automatically. Either create a New project and move your code over, OR, what I did is updated the versions for modules and cleaned up the project file including removing reference to VS2010 version info.

Also note, it was a bit confusing that you install NetMF and SDK v4.3, but really, your project will continue to use v4.2. Even if you create a new project, this seems to be the case.
