Does even the google cache[^] not work? Here's the text:

Enabling Guidelines
First, shut down Visual Studio 2005 if already started.
Under
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER]\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Text Editor
Create a string value called
Guides

Set Guides to the following
RGB(x,y,z) n1,...,n13

Where x,y,z are the RGB values and n is the column number. You can have at most 13 guidelines.
For example,
Guides = RGB(128,0,0) 5, 80

will place a Red guideline at column numbers 5 and 80.

And now launch VS and open a text file.


Disabling Guidelines
An obvious no-brainer, just delete the Guides keys you created above. Restart VS, and no more guidelines.


Cheers,
Vıkram.

I've never ever worked anywhere where there has not been someone who given the choice I would not work with again. It's a job, you do your work, put up with the people you don't like, accept there are probably people there that don't like you a lot, and look forward to the weekends.
