Environment: VS2010 (currently upgrading from VS2008), isolated shell application, custom project system using MPF
Runtime environment: Windows 7, 64bit

I've noticed that one dialog has 'Visual Studio' in the title rather than picking up my normal isolated application title.

The offending dialog is the progress dialog when opening a solution with many child projects.
The one with:
    Loading solution projects ...
    Loading project 3 of 42 : (sub-project name)

Hopefully this is just some value in the Application.pkgdef (or similar) that I overlooked.

Hi Reed,

Thanks for reporting the issue. Unfortunately, there is no way to change the "Visual Studio" string in that dialog. However, you can work around this issue by suppressing the dialog by setting a specific reg key in your application. To do this, add the following to a pkgdef file in your Isolated Shell application:


Let me know if this resolves your issue.
