Microsoft releases Update 1 for Visual Studio 2013

In December, Microsoft offered Visual Studio 2013 owners a release candidate version of Update 1. Today, the company released the final version of that patch, which offers a number of bug fixes to the software development tools.

As with the RC build, the final version of Update 1 does not offer anything in the way of major new features. However, S. Somasegar, the corporate vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft, states in a blog post today that it does incorporate improvements based on feedback from current users. He states, "For example, we heard your feedback about running Visual Studio in environments without IE10+, and have made several improvements to this experience in Update 1."

While this first update is mostly to address post-launch issues with the software, Microsoft is working on Update 2 that should be released later this spring. The company has already announced that Update 2 will add some new features to Visual Studio 2013 and will also include the first update for Team Foundation Server 2013.

Microsoft released the RTM version of Visual Studio 2013 in October, although it did not get a formal launch until early November. Somasegar stated today, "Two million developers watched the Visual Studio launch videos online, and tens of thousands joined in person at events around the world."

Obviously you wanted to reply to sinetheo but yeah, how difficult is it to figure out what changes to make? Also it's clear this isn't a default key and needs to be added.

Did they undo the ALL CAPS MENU disable feature? I had the registry command to put the menus so they would not scream at me and MS in all its wisdom decided to disable it and force me to use modern UI instead.

It drives me crazy every day and would like to put my registry fix to lower caps in the menu back again.

Oh and since 80% of all corps are still on IE 8 it is a nice fix if it could support that too. I am aware I may lose some HTML 5 cutting edgeness in the tools at work with the editor but the accounting department does not want to pay to upgrade are perfectly good working apps since we just upgraded them 2 years ago as it is so we could leave IE 6?!

I have not had any issues using SuppressUppercaseConversion with 2013. Are you sure you are not using the old registry key for 2012?

I reimaged my system and the exe that pulls it off the internet removed the SupressUpperCaseConversion key. It's not there anymore

WHY WOULD ANYBODY NEED THAT FEATURE? I REALLY CAN'T SEE ANY USE FOR IT.

Entry is gone for either version of VS so ps won't fix it. Just a little caution for anyone who upgrades and minds the ALL CAPS as I guess the update will disable that entry as well

The entry needs to be created. It does not exist by default.

Or just download this update file from article and type in CMD :

VS2013.1.exe /layout

than you can specify where it should be stored and you have offline update too.

And yes, you can do this with every stub-installer file
