    In my Visual Studio .NET environment, I get really big text in dialogboxes. It looks like old Windows 3.1... how do I change that?

    (I've tried Options->Evironment->Fonts and Colors, but found nothing that worked)

    Thanks in advance!

    There are lots of bugs in the .NET gluewhere application model under the current implementations.

    I would not attempt to use this product yet as in my opinion this is still in pre-beta even though it’s usable, you are the testers as it’s a hugely complex and varied application. You can input C# modules C++ modules VB code, XP scripts, Internet related/enabled calls, directly call operating system functions, but no operating system explicit items as it’s supposed to be platform independent, so no API calls then even though you can do this as with all Microsoft products on X86 architecture. This will take even experienced programmers years to learn during which time it will probably by upgraded/replaced by another and less complex solution a has happened in the past. However the idea is good as it could, in theory, replace operating systems at least in concept, leaving only a kernel and associated hardware drivers, the rest you input at install time.
