After installing Office 2010 Beta I encountred issues with visual studio, the designer and split view freezes visual studio and caused the application to crash.
on this site I found the solution.

If you get this problem then there is a simple solution, well, one that worked for me. You need to run a repair on the “Microsoft Visual Studio Web Authoring Component” that is part of Office 2007.

You can find the setup in the following locations:

Windows 64bit

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Setup.exe

Windows 32bit

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Setup.exe

Today I needed to inspect the webtraffic to my WCF webservices, Fiddler was not able to see my webtraffic to localhost. To use fiddler with localhost these steps needs to be done: 1. Disable IPv6 in Fiddler configuration. [caption id="attachment_41" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Fiddler settings"]Fiddler settings[/caption] 2.
