Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 error message patched

.NET developers have been getting 'insufficient memory' notifications when doing small cut or copy operations in Visual Studio 2010 RTM. Microsoft has released a patch for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 intended to address insufficient memory messages developers are getting when doing small cut or copy operations.

"Attempting to cut or copy small to moderate amounts of text in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 RTM (Release to Manufacturing) may incorrectly cause the following error: 'Insufficient available memory to meet the expected demands of an operation at this time, possibly due to virtual address space fragmentation. Please try again later,' " said Brittany Behrens, program manager for the Microsoft Visual Studio Editor team, in a blog post. "In some cases, Microsoft Visual Studio incorrectly calculates that not enough memory is available (even though there is memory available)," and displays the error message, said Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president in the Microsoft Developer Division, also in a blog post.

Behrens noted that both before and after hotfix installation, there are cases when Microsoft Visual Studio accurately reports that not enough memory is available for a given operation. "You may still see out of memory dialogs when attempting to make a very large cut or copy (50+ MB of data at once). However, the fix should ensure that Microsoft Visual Studio is legitimately unable to find enough memory to execute such a large operation before displaying this dialog. The frequency of such a dialog should be dramatically decreased after installing the hotfix," Behrens said.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 was released in April and features capabilities for SharePoint and Windows 7 application development as well as multi-monitor support. But performance issues had pushed back its release by several weeks. The patch is available for downlaod here

But the lifecycle for development of mobile apps is also new and different. Emerging trends in mobile development call for faster delivery of incremental features, coupled with feedback from the users of the app "in the wild".
