WinMD5- Windows MD5 Hashes

WinMD5 v2.0 is a free Windows tool for calculating the MD5 hashes ("fingerprints") of files. These fingerprints can be used to ensure that your file is uncorrupted.



The TFS Administration Tool

The TFS Administration Tool allows a Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server® (henceforth referred to as TFS ) administrator to quickly add users to all three platforms utilized by TFS: TFS, Sharepoint, and SQL Reporting Services (RS), all through one common interface. The tool also allows administrators to change the current permissions on any of the three tiers, identify any errors, and view all of the users and their permission sets across TFS, Sharepoint, and SQL RS.

This tool was created by the Developer Solutions team in Developer Division at Microsoft. 

Once you have selected your TFS server and Team Project, you can perform a number of tasks to manage the users and user permissions in your Team Project, including:

  1. Add a new user to the TFS Server, Sharepoint server, and SQL Reporting Services server, with default permissions based upon your selected TFS role and the XML Mappings File included in the program folder (RoleConfig.xml).
  2. Change permissions for an individual user on any of the three platforms (TFS, Sharepoint, SQL RS)
  3. Select multiple roles for an individual user on Sharepoint or SQL RS
  4. Make multiple changes at once, and then save all of the changes at once
  5. View the action logs to view the results of your changes (successful changes and errors)

ReSharper 2.0 Beta Available for Download

What’s new in upcoming version of  ReSharper ?

ReSharper adds 10 more refactorings to the already implemented set, including Safe Delete, Pull Members Up and Push Members Down, and others.

Context actions
Context actions are intended for small code transformations that you may want perform in a certain context. When you position a caret at any place in the code editor, ReSharper displays what context actions can be applied for the code under the caret.


Quick documentation lookup
To see the documentation for a certain class, method, or other symbol right in the editor, position the caret on the symbol name and press Ctrl + Q.

File templates
ReSharper lets you add new files to your project with predefined code fragments already generated in them. For example, you can create a new file with a class declaration, an interface, struct declaration, and so on.

Type Hierarchy view
With ReSharper, you can view the inheritance hierarchy of a certain type in a dedicated window. The window shows both base types and inheritors of the selected type and allows you to navigate to any of them with a single click.


File Structure view
With the File Structure window, you can see what methods, fields, classes, and regions your current file contains, as well as navigate directly to their declarations.


Running and debugging tests
ReSharper automatically detects whether your project contains unit tests of supported test frameworks (NUnit and csUnit).
