With Visual Studio 2012, we just showed the delegates the possibility of Reimagine the application with Windows 8!” exclaimed Walter.

Quipped Tim, “As IntelliTrace is no longer a new tool in the debugging toolbox, some users are familiar with it. However, we all know Visual Studio is not something we want to install in a production environment. So, whether the attendees are new to IntelliTrace or not, they can see the value of the standalone version being that little extra tool needed to collect data in a production environment to facilitate debugging and problem solving their apps. This should make VS itself more significant as it is required to debug the IntelliTrace logs.”
