Same tool. Different results.

Microsoft used to make simple development tools that just worked. But lately their software is bloated and unpredictable.

I’ve been using Visual Studio 2005. I zipped up a completed solution and sent it off to somebody also using the same version of Visual Studio 2005. A build produced completely different results. Yet he was using only the zip file I sent him.

How exactly can that happen?

One thought on “Same tool. Different results.

  1. What kind of “different results”? Solutions don’t store environment information, so if your colleague has a very different configuration of VS2005, I can see you getting something other than expected.

    Really depends on “what” is different though ;)
