A tip on using VPCs

It would be a good practice for those working on VPCs to share all the drives of the host machine (done via VM additions). This will allow everyone to save their files on the host operating system and be protected from VPC crashes.

Unfortunately for VS.NET users, this will invoke a network drive security exception on the VPC machine because the code is being executed on a network location. To avoid that, follow the information in the article below.
Giving a Mapped Drive .NET FullTrust

I have used a more restrictive variant of the command line:
c:\>caspol -q -machine -addgroup 1 -url “file://y:/my documents/visual studio projects/*” FullTrust -name "AGT-214 Visual Studio Projects"
