It wasn't my computer that was the problem. It was a client's machine on the other end. He didn't pay attention, and just allowed for updates. Shut down the session to open a new project (don't know why he closed VS, but what ya gonna do?) anyway, he couldn't restart it anymore without it forcing the stupid update, so it meant we were done for the day.

We work over 3000 miles apart. He's not a dev, but because of what we're doing he has to have a debugger on his machine. VS is what he knows how to use, so it's what I recommended he buy a subscription to for the course of this project.

Well, mostly it works, but when an unintentional update kills the rest of my business day it makes me mad at the people who shipped the update, pretty much regardless.
Real programmers use butterflies
