Tasktop 2.0.2 for Visual Studio has been released. This maintenance release is focused on smoothing the installation and configuration process for users in corporate development environments. For instance, Tasktop can now handle the alternate locations of user profile directories that occur in some enterprise environments.
Many users will be unaffected by these fixes. However, if the Task List view in Visual Studio freezes while displaying the message “The Task List service is initializing…” then you may need this update. While this message is shown, if you click on an action in the Task List view toolbar (e.g. New Task), Visual Studio may freeze and it must be forcefully quit. Both of these issues are fixed in this service release. If you still have problems after upgrading, there are some work-arounds on the FAQ noted below.
