Description

It is not possible to select the text in most dialog boxes generated for Visual Studio exceptions.  For instance, when attempting to change the network mix in Web Load Tests, the dialog box refers you to a URL at go.microsoft.com for details on administration privileges required.  However, it is not possible to select the URL and paste it into a browser.

Hey, kludgy or not, that works for me, for now at least! Glad to hear you'll consider selectible text for 11. Thanks!

Bill,
We were able to recreate the problem and have moved it to the dev 11 back log to have it prioritized with everything else.

As a workaround you can use "Ctrl_Insert" to copy message box text, paste in notepad and select URL. Kludgy workaround, i agree.

Thanks!

Yeah, I thought it was a little late in the going. Aah, well, we'll get it for 11.

Bill,
Thank you for submitting this issue. We have looked at it and unfortunately it does not meet the bar to fix for Dev10 RTM. However, we will see if we can fix it in a future release.
