You are telling me that you can just install a VS command line compiler and use 
another external editor instead of the official ?
Is it also true for C# ?

I had tried VS once, 2005 express. There wasn't any accessible dialog box. 
I had to use it to be able to make C inline assemblee in intel syntax (for a 
class course). It was quite ahrd because of the editor not because of the 

Later I tried VSC# 2008. Accessibility hadn't improved allthough jaws had a 
builtin script for it.
The most annoying was the following: you begin to write, for example " X = ". 
You haven't finished to write that, that a popup told you "the variable X is 
undefined". Yes I know, idiot, I've just begin to write. And after that you 
naturally couldn't go back to the editor text area easily. Completely stupid
