The VS2005 style is missing some stuff that allows it to format parameter information into the topic titles. I had a patch available for Sandcastle but I took it out a new refresh has been issued and I've updated it. A new version will be available late today along with an updated patch for Sandcastle. In the meantime, use the Prototype presentation style.
