Visual Studio Db Pro (DataDude) Headaches

So, no question, Db Pro is a great tool. However, it is not without it's headaches.

When working with TFS and multiple team members, we have had no end of synching problems and regular out of memory errors. This only seems to occur when multiple users are working on the same Db Pro project.

As you can imagine, this has added to development time on projects... ok not hugely but certainly a day or maybe two in terms of charge-able hours and in terms of developer frustration and tense working environment!

My advice to you would be keep it to single user projects where possible... if not, maybe wait for SP1 or Orcas before switching to DataDude.
