PrevX – DeleteOld (eh?)

I just found that the top entry in google for ‘codebureau’ is actually some listing on (which I’d never heard of) that’s seeming to suggest that DeleteOld (a console app I posted on CodeProject some time ago) is possibly spyware/malware – bloody cheek!  I’d be interested to know how this pops up on that tool, and also whether the .NET code has some flaws that means it can be used in a malicious way.  At least then I could defend myself.

Visual Studio 2003 Colours – Registry Entries

Visual Studio 2003 doesn’t give you any way of exporting your customised colours (I’ve gone for a ‘black’ theme) – well, black is the new black you know!

The theme’s shown below (not that it’s that great – but illustrates the effect the registry entries (further below) have…  In Visual Studio 2005 of course you can simply export your entire settings.  Oh yeah – also ignore the code as that’s simply a work in progress for something I’m going to post on CodeProject in the next couple of months.

To create this look – simply copy the text below and save in a .reg file.  Take a backup of your current colours first of course by exporting the key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\FontAndColors] to a file.  I’ve got some ReSharper v2 settings in there too so you can remove those if you don’t use ReSharper (shame on you!)
