It's a nice idea, but I downloaded the 3.0.4465 beta and it won't even start up. I installed it (never having installed the version 2 previously) and tried to access it from the Tools menu in VS2010. All I get is a never-ending sequence of 2 dialog boxes :-
DBProvider.DBOpen: Unable to open the database file. DBProvider.ExecuteNonQuery: The database is not open.
This is on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Is there a step I missed? Shouldn't it have created a default database if it needed one?
It looks nice, but the most important feature (which VS already has) is the connection between TODO-Element and Sourcecode. If i have a todo and do a doubleclicke on the entry I am in my Document and can start to Program. Here I see my TODOs but i have to search for, where it is.
So it is not useful to my claims. But still stable and useful for other programmers perhaps.
The current version uses an embedded DB as opposed to a DB Server such as SQL. Further the DB file resides in your AppData folder so it would not be accessible from other machines. I could provide an option where the user would like to locate the DB file in the event that the user would wish to do this, that would be a fairly easy fix.
Unfortunately it will not work in VS2010 Premium at least here. First attempt to open it gave an error message. Now I am unable to start it at all. After removing and re-installing I now get no response from clicking the To Do Manager menu item in Tools nor in Other Windows
What OS are you running? The data file is located in the [VS Install] directory and needs to have write
access. This may be an issue. There are a few fringe cases where the extension does not work but I
haven't gotten any feedback from anyone yet so I'm not sure whats going on.
In the next version I would like to locate the data directory in the AppData directory structure and am
nearing completion of Version 1.1 so you may want to check back in a week or so.
Sorry it isn't working for you, hope we can correct in the furture.
