Published a little utility for sorting items within a SalesLogix bundle (don’t you hate it when the Architect decides to “shuffle” the items you took 20 minutes to arrange?). I don’t work that much with the SalesLogix LAN client anymore but this was irritating enough that I had to do something about it.

It is on the MSDN code gallery.

Microsoft Visual Studio is waiting for an operation to complete

This is not an uncommon message… but I hope this could help someone who is confronted with the same issue I was.

I found I was getting the error every time I started Visual Studio in the morning, with Visual Studio hanging for a looong time… but not in the afternoon… crazy uh? The difference is in the morning I connect to my workstation via remote desktop… and usually in the afternoon I am physically at the keyboard. It turns out the delay was caused by the remote desktop clipboard helper… an application called rdpclip.exe. Killing the application solved the problem (though it does prevent pasting via remote desktop, obviously, but I can live without that)
