I encourage you to try FREE version of VScodePrint (search VS Gallery for 'color code print' to find it) that prints just like this extension and offers much more.
VScodePrint has solved the know issues documented in the Description. Joginder Nahil
Simply does not work. When installed, selecting print still brings up the print dialog, as it should, but selecting print from that dialog does nothing at all, so the upshot of this extension is that it completely disables printing. Worse than useless.
For colour printing in VS2012 download Productivity Power Tools from here: http://visualst udiogallery.msd n.microsoft.com /3a96a4dc-ba9c- 4589-92c5-640e0 7332afd This gave me colour printing in VS 2012 Pro on Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. I hope it works for you all :)
It has one paper format (no idea which one) and then simply scales it to the paper size of the printer. The page setup dialog is disabled too, so I can't change any pagesize preferences. If you've got a bit more code or longer lines and want to use something like DIN A3 (or US "tabloid"), no luck. Still wrapped lines, still no more lines per page, just bigger letters.
Excellent for VS2010.
For those wanting this functionality in VS2012, download Productivity Power Tools from http://visualst udiogallery.msd n.microsoft.com /3a96a4dc-ba9c- 4589-92c5-640e0 7332afd
My vote added for getting this fixed for VS2012.
For Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate edition only the line numbers are printed in color. The code does not print at all!
Does what is says but as others said - this should have been built it. Better late than Never! Thanks!
This should have been built it!!
Does not work in VS2012 Premium.
Completely disables printing on my computer ... to any printer, on any application. As soon as I disable or uninstall it, I can print again.
Win 7, VS-2010
Please port this tool on VS 2012! Until this point in time take the "SUPPORTS"-mark away. Definitely it doesn't work!!
As was said earlier :(
--- It does not work with VS2012 Ultimate RTM. The filename and the page no is printed in the page header, but code does not get printed. ---
When will this be updated for VS2012?
Does not work with VS2012 Ultimate RTM.
The filename and the page no is printed in the page header, but code does not get printed.
It's really needed, thanks!
It's good that it brings syntax printing back to VS, but it looks as if it was hacked together by a trainee. it really needs control over font size and line spacing.
If you select a section of your code, it doesn't automatically choose the Selection radio button and you end up with the entire file if you don't notice it.

How do I uninstall this? I prefer the black and white to what this does.

Are there any plans to bring this to VS2012? If I try to install this on the RC it crashes.
August 07, 2012
I noticed the description of the project has been updated to support Visual Studio 2012 RC, so I re-installed this package and now VS doesn't crash! That's good.
However, when I print I get a blank sheet of paper. That's bad.
The header w/the file name prints, the color line numbers on the side print...but there's nothing else. I even tried using the 'light' theme instead of the 'dark' theme, thinking that might make a difference...no
pe, same behavior.
Perhaps a new release would be in order?

Same here--beautiful blank pages with line numbers. VS 2012 RC and HP Photosmart printer.
August 21, 2012
yea, blank pages with the exception of the header, which shows. Perhaps some more work is in store for this.

I get the same--blank pages with line numbers in VS 2012.

Doesn't work for me unfortunately. I'm on the professional version of VS 2012 that's available via Dreamspark Premium.
I get the following error.
"Could not load file or assembly

VS2012 generates empty pages for me, too. I also would appreciate if this show-stopper could be fixed.
December 12, 2012
Is anyone else still having problems with this extension, as when i install it on vs2012 pro i can't get the print dialog to come up?!

I hope it works for you all :)

My question is about why this wasn't implemented in VS2012 to start with. We had this in VS2008. And Microsoft "upgraded" this feature away. I can't be the only person who values this feature.
September 14, 2012
What about the "known issues"?
Is there any current work in progress for this extension?
Or would you mind making this extension open source so that other developers may continue development?
September 07, 2012
Having color really makes a huge difference when looking through large pages of code. I'm not sure why this was not just included into VS 2012. but please update the extension to work in VS 2012.
August 28, 2012
What's it take to get this updated to work with VS2012 RTM?
April 16, 2012
I cannot set the print to print in landscape mode.

I’m sorry that “print in color” doesn’t work in the Express Version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
I’m trying my best to learn C#.
Will it available in the next release of Visual Studio for the Express Version?
Could it be updated for the Express Version?
