  New MSVC Instance
  Submitted by

Hi, this is not really a game development tip, more a msvc/windows tip: In version 5, when you doubleclicked a dsp/dsw msvc would open a new instance of msvc. Real handy. Now, in 6 when you doubleclick a dsp/dsw it will open in the same instance, closing your current workspace, so you must manually open a new instance of msvc. There's a trick! :)

In your folder options, browse for DSP and DSW and click advanced and then click edit. Now disable DDE. that's it..

bye bye now :)

The zip file viewer built into the Developer Toolbox made use of the zlib library, as well as the zlibdll source additions.
