No BitShift operations in VB


I am using VS2013 and .NETMF 4.3 and have discovered that there are no bit shift operations (<< or >>) available.

Is this a bug or were they removed?

If it is a bug, do you know when they will be replaced?

Agreed, I am having trouble with this also. Is there an alternative at least?

Agree... the bitshifting is not working in 2012 4.2 either - I'm getting System.Nullable(Of) is not defined - even when using Microsofts examples...

Any news on this as being fixed in 4.3

Not unless you switch to Roslyn, which you can't easily, because MF is lying to it about STAThread attribute.
