Support for VS11?

Dec 31, 2011 at 4:07 AM

I know it's just a developer preview right now, but any chance you'll add support for VS11 soon? I tried d/l the source and making my own Add-in, but alas, I'm a mere mortal and it failed.

Work in VS11.

Copy file in C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\Visual Studio 11\AddIns

Change in file *.Addin version number 10.0 to 11.0

Sample :

<HostApplication>
<Name>Microsoft Visual Studio Macros</Name>
<Version>11.0</Version>
</HostApplication>
<HostApplication>
<Name>Microsoft Visual Studio</Name>
<Version>11.0</Version>
</HostApplication>

Awesome, thanks. I was unzipping the VSI and editing the .addin file there, then installing, which wasn't working. Editing the .addin in the folder as you described worked pefectly.

 

Thanks again and thanks for an awesome product!

After editing, just re-zip it and rename it to .VSI.

While zipping back, you need to zip it using "Deflate" method.

7-zip allows you to specify that and I think WinZip too (just that I haven't use WinZip in a long time, so not sure).

Could you update the build-script (I'm a bit afraid of touching it tbh xD) so that a .vs11.vsi is created as well? Either by doing some xpath-replace in the xml-file or simply creating a second .v11 xml-file?

After installing 88455, I don't see the add-in in Visual Studio 2012 RC.  Is there something else that I need to do?

Ah, apparently it's installing the Addin in:

C:\Users\Me\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Addins

however, 2012 RC is actually loading it's addins from:

C:\Users\Me\Documents\Visual Studio 11\Addins

Whoops!
