VFP: Using Microsoft Connect to log FoxPro issues

Posted on October 13, 2006. Filed under: Visual FoxPro |

You may have read Milind’s October letter where he mentions how to log feedback on the SP2 CTP. He links to the Connect site here: http://connect.microsoft.com

It can be difficult to navigate however, so here’s a quick summary of how to get through the maze that is… Microsoft Connect.

Summary: go here to search, go here to lodge feedback, click here to view FoxPro items

Note 1: you will need to log in using your Microsoft Live ID if you want to give feedback.

Note 2: if lodging feedback use the ‘Visual FoxPro 9.0 SP1’ Version dropdown on this form (after logging in).

 

For anyone who’s interested, here’s a run down of how I got through the maze…

Go to http://connect.microsoft.com/

Sign in with your Microsoft Live ID (old Passport)

Now you can go to the My Participation page:

https://connect.microsoft.com/myparticipation.aspx

From here it is not very intuitive – you need to check the available connections:

https://connect.microsoft.com/availableconnections.aspx

Scroll dwn a bit and choose ‘Visual Studio and .NET framework’ (this was noted in Milind’s September letter):

https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio

Click on the Feedback link to get to here:

http://connect.microsoft.com/feedback/default.aspx?SiteID=210

You will now be able to perform a Search of existing items.

You can also use the Advanced Search page here:

https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/AdvancedSearch.aspx?SearchQuery=

You can search on ‘foxpro’ OR ‘vfp’ with this link:

https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/SearchResults.aspx?Advanced=true&KeywordSearchIn=2&SearchQuery=vfp+OR+foxpro&FeedbackType=0

In order to lodge feedback you can use this link (from Milind’s September letter):

https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/CreateFeedback.aspx

Seems overly difficult right? I hope I’ve missed something really obvious, because it took me a while initially to do a search on FoxPro issues (earlier tonight I was searching for SP2 installer issues…). What is good though is their timeframes on some resolutions (eg see this one).
