Web Essentials is not compatible with Visual Studio Express 2013 for web. Too many steps just to create TypeScript projects.

I installed Visual Studio 2013 update 2 ctp 2 and I installed Web Essential 2013 nightly. I know web essentials 2013 nightly is not release. I say some feedback. Visual studio 2013 update 2 ctp 2 has scss formatting after web essentials 2013 nightly it is not working. HTML formatting is not running when scss file is open. Also maybe add intellisense for @ character in sass files.
I've used this extension with VS 2012 and was excited to use VS 2013 so I added this extension that I use daily but I keep getting an exception has encountered error. This may be caused by an extension and it gives me the path for the error log.
When I go into my tools options and look at the extension I get "An error occurred loading this property page."
UPDATE: Upgraded to 1.9. Seems to have fixed the UI slowdown issue. Back to being an essential plugin again.
As others have commented I've had to disable this addon (1.8.5) also due to UI slow-downs over time eventually causing Visual Studio to become unusable requiring a restart. I have no doubt this will get fixed soon as Mads has mads programming skills but I do miss it in the interim.
I really like this extension, and I hate to give it such a low rating, but after using it for a few days in VS2013 I finally had to disable it. It is way too unstable for me to use in it's current state.
Some issues I ran into: * The by far biggest one: VS started crashing whenever I saved settings. (NullReferenceException at MadsKristensen.EditorExtensions.BrowserLink.UnusedCss.UnusedCssExtension.GetIgnoreList()) * TypeScript functionality caused random crashes on save. (InvalidOperationException at MadsKristensen.EditorExtensions.Margin.TextViewMargin.SetText(System.String)) * Impossible to disable the (IMO overly-intrusive) browser link extension. Possibly related to the settings issue.
This extension has a lot of promise, so I hope you can get the kinks out of it!
Under Windows 8.1 and Visual Studio 2013 installing this add-in caused extremely slow typing. It can result in delays of around a second when typing and bringing up intellisense, as well as when debugging and trying to switch between VS and the browser (which could take many, many seconds).
Not sure if it's some other part of my setup, but I installed and uninstalled twice and this was definitely the culprit. I have no feedback on other aspects of this add-in.
This is an essential (see what I did there?) plugin for all of our web devs. Things like auto-minify for js files or JS HINT in the error list turns Visual Studio into the IDE you have always dreamed of for web development. This plugin is one of the reasons we even bothered to use LESS in our production code...it makes using all these technologies very easy to get started with and other devs can pick it up quickly without learning build scripts, etc.
I've been very happy with the quick releases (see change log here: http://vswebessentials.com/changelog)
Some of my JS files give me a minify option, others don't. If I delete the .min.js file then the menu reappears, but randomly disappears again.
For the .JS files where minify is disabled, I instead get options to run JSLint and JSCS, which aren't available on the JS files that DO allow me to minify. Is there a trick here?
An exception was thrown when compiling ~\Content\bootstrap.scss: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I just finished installing VS2013 Update 2 RC and restarting my machine. The Web Essentials install says:
The following references must be present before installation can continue:
VS2013 Update 2 RC
I fired up procmon to see if I could tell what is missing but nothing sticks out.
What am I missing?
I propose a name change to,
"Web Essentials for Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 RC"
The present title in a busy day is a bit terse. I wasn't even aware there was a VS 2013 Update RC 2 available, hence my confusion.
-just a suggestion for clarity -- a lot of things have an 'Update 2 RC'
Is anyone else able to install this onto VS 2013 Pro Update 1? Whenever I try to install it says that it is missing "VS 2013 Update 2 RC" - is there still no version of Web Essentials compatible with the latest VS 2013 Pro?
I'm now getting this error as an attempt to re-install as of 1/2 an hour ago. This is in MSVC Ultimate 2013
Originally installed April 1 (maybe this was an omen?) but decided to re-install today since some options that reportedly should have been available never materialized.
Now the April 2 version is failing to install and complains about this same error.
Guess I should never have uninstalled.
Please assist, I'm stuck.
You either need to install VS 2013 Update 2 RC (as described in big, bold letters on this gallery listing), or use an older version of Web Essentials. You can get 1.9, which does not require VS 2013 Update 2 RC, from https://github.com/madskristensen/WebEssentials2013/releases/tag/v1.9
When I open a TypeScript project, I am receiving a VS2013 error. When I try to build the project, I get errors saying the global TSLint settings file cannot be found. Below is the trace from the VS2013 ActivityLog.xml:

Any idea on how to fix the error?
