    Hi,

    This probably going to sound infantile...

    Please define 'Hive'.

    It's actually in the article, not the post. "Start Visual Studio from a new hive" ...

    Well Hive I have always associated with the Registry. From Google:
    A hive in the Windows Registry is the name given to a major section of the registry that contains registry keys, registry subkeys, and registry values.

    All keys that are considered hives begin with "HKEY" and are at the root, or the top of the hierarchy in the registry, which is why they're also sometimes called root keys or core system hives.

    To use a more common term, a hive is like a starting folder in the registry. Everything in the registry is ultimately contained in various hives.

    I don't know if this helps, but I was pretty sure it didn't have anything to do with bees....

    It seems like VS stores data in a private Registry file, so the "hive" business may relate to that. Starting from a new hive may mean generating a new private Registry file.

    Thanks guys,

    I wondered if it just meant making a new folder and installing a separate instance of VS in there ?

    Because this is not a question, more of an announcement, I have moved this thread to the General Development forum.

    The article explains how to launch VS in a new hive, unless your question was something different.
    Open the Visual Studio 2022 Developer Command prompt (Start > “Dev…”)
    Enter the command `devenv /rootSuffix ModVB`
    it is under Step 1. Launch Visual Studio in a new Hive. It even explains why as part of that section

    looking at the announcement it looks like its simply a separately names space that he suggested working in to protect your original workspace.

    He set it when opening the IDE and was able to use it or the original workspace.

    Kind of like working in a sandpit to protect stuff or creating and resourcing a version for a particular purpose.

    just thinking out loud

    I think that would be sandbox, not sandpit. I wouldn't normally point that out, but this could be a case where different cultures use different terms, and that would be interesting. In the US, the term sandbox fits your description. Sandpits, by contrast, seem to have a variety of meanings, several of them being kind of negative, though not in a very bad way.

    Visual Basic highlights include:

    Debugging: In Visual Studio 2022, as developers move a cursor within the left margin, a dot will appear that can be clicked to find available types of breakpoints to insert, including: conditional, tracepoint, temporary and dependent breakpoints.
    Editor: Dollard said a number of new features in the editor make everyday coding smoother and more efficient, including:
    Subword navigation: "You probably use Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right to move one word to the left and right. In Visual Studio 2022, you can use Ctrl-Alt-Left and Ctrl-Alt-Right to move left and right by parts of words (supports the Pascal style of symbol naming)."

    Inheritance Margin: "The inheritance margin adds icons to the left margin representing where code is derived from other code, and where other code derives from this code."
    Underline reassigned: "The new underline reassigned feature is for folks that want to know whether variables are reassigned, or remain set to their initial value."
