ViEmu/VS 2.1.26 fixing a freeze (‘undo’ on an running ASP/VB app in VS2008)

The title says it all. The bug was reported here: When doing ‘undo’ with ViEmu on a VB file in an ASP.NET/VB.NET web app under VS2008, Visual Studio would freeze. This was due to the ‘Edit.Undo’ calls ViEmu does failing silently, and ViEmu not realizing it. ViEmu does several calls to this VS function, in order to undo the last complete action, and it would get stuck in an infinite loop due to this reason. I’ve now made it bail out if any of the calls fails.

Here is the link to download it:

Be sure to manually uninstall the previous version from the control panel before installing this one.

I will make this the officila latest build downloaded from the main download links after it’s been out there a bit longer.
