Is it possible to develop in Visual Studio on the host machine while F5 deploying/debugging a SharePoint WSP to a VM with SharePoint 2010 installed? I have had significant issues with Visual Studio, SharePoint, ReSharper, etc. when developing in a VM and I would like to take advantage of the new SSD's and RAM of my host computer.

Does anyone have a similar setup or am i stuck with installing visual studio in each of my VM's?

Thanks!

Ok. The F5 deploying/debugging is not going to work the way you intend it to. I have tried this myself and just ended up installing VS2010 on the server.

Ok, thanks. Its unfortunate, but hopefully this new rig will perform better. –  ps_md Jan 30 '13 at 15:43
