Is Managed C++ supported in VAX?

I'm using MC++ in VS.NET 2008 and have found all kinds of bugs. I'm wondering if I should report them.

For example, adding "sealed" after a class name will cause VAX to think the class name is illegal, and I get red curly underlines everywhere it appears in the code (this bug is particularly hard to avoid).

public ref class Utils sealed

At the least, if MC++ is not supported, then VAX should do no harm, i.e. don't underline stuff as errors in the code that aren't..

In general VA is supposed to support Managed C++, but it does have some problems. To be fair VA also has some problems with normal C++ as well, its a complex language

sealed after a class is a known problem:


The work around for this is to edit VA's "StdAfx.h" file as explained in this FAQ entry:


and add the entry:

#define sealed

at the bottom. This file is used to help VA's parser with difficult code, and can be used to work around odd effects. After modifying this file you need to rebuild the VA symbol database for the changes to take effect:

VA Options -> Performance -> General -> Rebuild symbol databases
