In order to get VS2003 to run under Win7 and above, I have the following properties set on its shortcut:
  1. Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows Vista (service pack 1)
  2. Disable visual themes
  3. Disable desktop composition
  4. Run this program as administrator
IIRC, items #1 and #4 are required for VS2003 to find registry settings and its own files properly. Believe it or not, items #2 and #3 correct a fault in the "find in files" operation that locks up without these checked.

Even with these set, there's a bug in the debugger (oh the irony) that fails to close a handle to the solution's .PDB file. After you've run your app under the debugger once, you have to exit VS2003 and restart in order to recompile your solution.
Software Zen: delete this;
