I still observe VS freezing when I change control ids or add/delete controls in the HTML Source view.
Another annoying delay happens when the solution builds with errors. I have to wait a few seconds before I can do anything.

After installing the hotfix it appears that you can't create a new website anymore.
Any workarounds? Thanks.
visual Studio 2008 bug

Do you get a specific error because it works fine for me...

No specific error, just after instaling the hotfix, choose File->New->Web Site... and the dialog is empty, all fields disabled.

Most probably the issue is unrelated since a) hotfix does not change anything related to templates or IDE code and b) there are reports about sudden template disappearance without the hotfix. Try running
devenv /installvstemplates from command line. You can also try uninstalling the hotfix and see if it makes a difference.

This is a shot in the dark, but you could try going to Tools -> Import and Export Settings -> Reset all settings

This is an issue with the hotfix.
Uninstalling it returns the functionality back.
Running devenv /installvstemplates does not help, neither does resetting of all of the settings.
Every member of our team with the same configuration as mine have the same problem. I have: Windows XP, Visual Studio Team System 2008 Development Edition. Guys on Vista have no problems.

I was experiencing that problem BEFORE the hotfix. I have no project templates in the File-> New Website dialog. Unfortunately, after the hotfix, I still do not have the website project templates....not that I expected them to magically appear as a result
of a completely unrelated hotfix, but maybe this information is useful anyway.

I can't reproduce the problem. Here is my machine config:
- WinXP Professional SP2 clean machine
- VS Team System 2008 Development Edition
- Install the hotfix according to the article
After the hotfix installation, I can still create a new website, add some controls, and run it as usual. Is there any other step that I need to do to repro the issue?

I guess I have figured out what of the problem is. Apparently vs2008 cares for casing in the file paths. I have exported HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0 before applying the hot fix and after. It appears that the only difference between
the two dumps (aside from some uninstall info) is that the latter has most of the file paths starting "c:\\" (lowere case) when the former had those in upper case : "C:\\".
To anyone who's experiencing similar problem I'd suggest following steps for installing the hotfix:
