Simply awesome!

Just started doing some WIX work and realized I was going to be using the Create GUID tool a lot. This little plugin works great right out of the gate and has lots of customization options to meet different language needs.

Nice tool, saved me a lot of time!

A must have for any WiX/installation developer.
Does everything it supposed to do and has all required settings: GUID format, upper-case, prefix/suffix.

I assigned Alt+G key-combination - so I can insert GUID single-handily.

Simple and fast, exactly what I needed now that Macros are gone.

Thanks for this plug-in!
Works great!

Does the job well. It's also configurable, so if you want your GUIDs in a specific format or in all upper-case, this is the tool for you. By default, the keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+K,Ctrl+J.

UPDATE: 12/24/2013

I installed VS 2013 today and found that GuidInserter2 is only supported for VS 2010 and VS 2012. I'd love to see this upgraded to support VS 2013.

UPDATE: 12/26/2013

Two days after asking for a 2013 version, Visual Studio tells me there's an update for GuidInserter2. Guess what it now supports? 2013!

This is *AWESOME*- NO problems- does the trick! ## THANK YOU !! ##

Note that *all* drawbacks mentioned in the four earlier reviews are resolved- needing uppercase, and needing a contextual menu (or kybd shortcut). Those were all fixed in v2.1, released Dec 12, 2012.

So, if you're reading reviews, just ignore those negatives in earlier reviews.

Thank you!

No settings for uppercase :(

It very simple and useful!

by RennieP | February 05 2011

Can't use it because I need GUIDs with the hex letters in uppercase, and this program can only generate lowercase hex letters.

by Gabriel Mongeon | October 13 2010

Simple and works just as expected, but I would have love to see a contextual menu for inserting GUID instead of going each time to the Tools menu.
