Old (but unresolved) connect issues deleted

    Question

  • Some old connect issues have been deleted without being resolved, e.g:

    https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/677738/ifstream-putback-behavior-is-incorrect

    https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/684997/include-auto-completion-path-is-incorrect

    https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/708559/internal-compiler-error-with-default-arguments

    have all been deleted but were not resolved, should I resubmit these issues or simply give up on submitting visual studio bug reports?

    I don't blame you!

    But, I believe only the Connect people can do that. Please try to ask them about it (wish I could help more).

    Whether you should resubmit depends (IMHO) on whether the issues are still relevant. How old are the reports? What version(s) of VS are involved?

    In your shoes, if the issues are relevant, I'd submit a question on Connect regarding the deleted reports, and ask why.

    Please don't give up on reporting bugs via Connect. You know as well as I do that the vast majority, when validated, are being attended to by the dev team.

  • The reports are all at least 2 years old but the bugs are still present in visual studio 2015 (last time I checked). resubmitting the issues is quite a lot of work as all my carefully prepared reproduction code is gone, I was hoping MS could resurrect these issues without me having to rewrite them.
