Problem with Install on VS 2010 (64 bit)

Mar 8, 2011 at 9:39 PM

I have been battling with this for hours looks like a great tool but I just cant get it working.

I have tried installing 3 versions of the add-in and the MSI version.

I see it in the Add-in manager

I see the options in tools.

However I create a file called file.chirp.css and I get no code behind view.

What am I doing wrong have a missed something ?

Here at work our "My Documents" are stored on network storage, so its actually on \\someserver\somelocation\My Documents\

Some plugins that use java, or just plain ..some plugins. Don't like/trust paths like \\

The solution here was to create a folder like c:\vs-addins\ and dump all my custom addins in there instead, and then add that folder to the visual studio addin paths.

 

Download the vsix, open it as a zip, and take the files from inside and place the in for example your folder c:\vs-addins\chirpy
