Power Toys v1.0 for Visual Studio 2005

These power toys are targeted at providing solutions to developer pain-points and diagnostic tools for support services. Currently released tools include: 

  • MSBee – an addition to MSBuild that allows developers to build managed applications with MSBuild using Visual Studio 2005 projects that target .NET 1.1.  This tool was a top 10 customer request from Product Feedback Center.
  • Team Foundation Server Admin Tool – allows a TFS administrator to quickly add and modify user permissions to all three platforms utilized by TFS.  
  • Managed Stack Explorer – a lightweight tool that provides a quick and easy way to monitor .NET 2.0 managed processes and their stacks. 

Each Power Toy release is shared source, containing well-documented source code and extended documentation including developer design docs, test plans, planned future work items, and a “Getting Started” guide.  These Power Toys have been downloaded over 4,300 times in the first week alone.
