Vista available on MSDN and Visual Studio 2005 issues

It’s out that Windows Vista has been made available for download for MSDN subscribers. For developers that are running Visual Studio 2005 on Vista, Microsoft has created a page listing all known issues:

This one caught my attention:

Title: Exception thrown when accessing FTP URL’s

  • Description: When a user attempts to access a FTP URL Visual Studio calls getInputStream() and getContent() of URLConnection which results in it throwing “The operation has timed out”.
  • Work Around: None

 Notice the exception? Seems Microsoft is using Java without anyone finding out before. Now, who you’re gonna blame? 😉
