That won't make the change more eligible.

Oh, I did notice. I had been cautioning for years that switching to
a newer VS version (2005 or later) would cause severe problems. We
are still trying to recover from the switch to VS 2008. That said,
staying with VS 2003 really hadn't been an option, either. It's
just said that Microsoft has created a new DLL hell in their attempt
to fix the old one, and that they fail to admit it (assuming that
everybody should be using .NET, anyway).
