Hi all, Newby to this -- Installed OK, CS
files associated with it OK, CS file loads OK, Same CS file compiles with dot
net's CSC.exe fine (Net 4). SharpDevelop doesn't want to know. Almost all Build / Debug greyed out. After much consulting the oracle Google, not a sausage. Debug / "Attach to process" seemed a good
place to start. Nope, that just made mscorsvw.exe vanish from list. Came back after about 3 restarts. Finally, I find a feature that is not greyed out - an icon called "Builds all projects in the current solution"--
and that finally says "Compiling single files is not supported. Please create a
project". So I go to File / New and Project is GREYED OUT. I can create a new CS file,
which does NOTHING. So I choose New Solution. Then I get folders, I
get files, I get lost, I give up.
Anyone telling me I should know how to use C# before I come here is missding the point. I was fine with C# and Notepad++ and I wanted something a tiny bit better, buit I do not want to download MS.Net (I downloaded there Community edition, and on a 64 bit PC, it took 3 hours, then updated itself for anotgher 3 hours, then .. well, let's just remind ourselves I came here for something simpler and lighter, but something more t6han a text editor.
So basically may I ask could we simplify this for newbies? Could you please help with a simple simple simple getting started guide? Please see tags for simplified questions. I hope this query helps others.
Ps: Tried to sign in with
a *.eu email address, email came 30 mins later. Tried googlemail.com, it took about 15 mins. Ended up ignoring first. That's not good is it. :-) .. Idea: Tell folks to expect to wait 30 mins?
