**Delete the following note before publishing **
This resource page is currently in setup mode and only available to coordinators and developers. Once you have finished setting up your resource page you can publish it to make it available to all MSDN Code Gallery visitors.
To get your Resource Page ready to publish, you should do the following:
Make any changes to the details of your resource page
Here you can enable or disable functions of your resource page. You might want to turn on the Issue Tracker to allow users to provide feedback on your resource, or if you have a resource that does not involve a code sample, you may want to turn off the Releases tab.
Make sure your resource page description is detailed enough to let people search for your resource.
Add your code sample or other resources to the resource page
If you’re uploading code, go to the Releases tab and create a new release to house your code. Creating a release allows you to have the license properly displayed when people download your code, as well as provides a download count.
Edit your Wiki page to attach any resources you may have that are not source code.
If you want to let someone see your resource page before it is published, go to the People tab and add them to your resource page
This will let you add other team members who may be contributing to your resource, or just show it off and get feedback from someone you trust.
Tag your resource page with descriptive tags to make it easier for people to find your resources when browsing the gallery.
Publish your resource page so it becomes visible to everyone!

That's situation normal, or at least not uncommon - actual code production frequently outpaces the ability of Microsoft tech writers to publish KB articles.

I have been experiencing an un-ending hang when requesting to open the design view for some form code. I have applied this hotfix but the problem remains.
Project/solution worked in VS2008, originally developed in VS2003, migrated to VS2005 and VS2008 successfully.
Can view the code for all the forms, but even the simplest (smallest) forms will not open, and induce the hang.
Can create NEW form projects ok...old ones will not work.
I notice that the VS2010 process thread in the task manager (devenv.exe*32) is completely maxed out, 100% usage...so it thinks its doing something but likely stuck somewhere.
Using VS2010 Pro 10.0.30319.1

I installed the hotfix, and was behaving well for a few days but now is returning to the form designer crashing. Hopefully take out another hotfix to solve this problem quickly. Please Microsoft
