I'm a .Net generalist with 20 years experience programming Web/Windows projects. I'm only interested in solutions, not politics or dogma.

comment Why does CFileDialog::DoModal() Hang?
You need to use a UI thread. Check to see if you're calling the modal from a thread spun up that your program created. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/b807sta6.aspx

comment Giving team members more decision-making power led to very long arguments, blocking progress since there is no one with the final say
Sounds like a bit of a toxic team. It's hard to believe this behavior didn't manifest itself in other ways before the self-organizing effort.

comment Effective way of keeping past projects with their working development environment?
I think you also need to retain copies of all software/version and install your project from a script. It's a big step forward to be able to quickly reproduce the install every time.

comment How should I structure a solution for a long term project?
I totaly agree with this. After doing this stuff for 20 years, I almost always have to refactor decent sized solutions when I know more about the project.

comment Develop for Desktop and mobile use?
I'm not sure that phonegap is the final answer but writing apps in HTML5/JS with a native device interface layer is going to be the future of cross platform development.
