Today, I am embarking upon my global search and replace to change 13,000 lines of code. But I have had a problem with VS 2003 on my Vista machine -- it likes to hang when I use Find in Files or Replace in Files.
Google to the rescue. I very quickly found that Visual Themes is the problem. Fortunately, you can just turn Visual Themes off for VS 2003 without having to turn Aero off completely. Excellent!
I would have NEVER figured that out myself. I freaking love Google!
