VBCommenter hell

If anyone knows why VBCommenter won’t generate the proper XML files for documenting my VB project, please let me know.

I’ve always used C# as my favorite language, when I moved to work at IronSolutions the switch to VB.NET was a little burden I had to cope with. I was used to this third party Refactoring tool for C# (ReSharper from JetBrains) and the Commenter tool embedded in the VS.NET 2003. None of these features are available for VB.NET 2003 now, except this VBCommenter that won’t seem to work. The GotDotNet forum won’t offer many solutions, I already compiled the VBCommenter project twice with suggestions from the forum but no luck, so far.

Is Microsoft ever taking VB seriously? It looks like they’re adding a Refactoring tool for VB in 2005, but I can’t wait to the end of the year (2005) to migrate all the code to have it documented.

I also have the Ank tool for source control, hrmmm, probably VBCommenter and Ank won’t like each other…
