I have the same here too. There is a thread in the LS forums where a VS2012 version would work nicely. I think that changing the targets for the VSIX and building in VS2010 ought to make it work with VS2010/LS2011 and VS2012 as Jooky indicates too.
You can rename the vsix extension file to zip, extract the files and edit extension.vsixmanifest changing the
Compress, rename to vsix and you should be able to install it to vs2012.
This is a easy way to make it work in Vs2012:
Download winrar (free)
Open extension with winrar
Do not unzip.
Just locate the Manifestfile. Change 10.0 to 11.0
Save and Winrar change the archive.
No run the extension and choose to start with vs2012 version checker.
Any chance that this excellent extension can be made compatible with VS 2012 RTM? I use it a lot in my projects and there's at least 3 I'd like to convert but this issue is holding me up!
The Image button extension is great, thanks. Unfortunately though mouse hover does not cause the description text to be displayed as a tooltip; in fact nothing is displayed. Any chance of a fix for this please? (Just for information, I am using these from a Row Layout's command bar).
Also, would it be possible to have a version which does NOT display the button outline as a square, but just the attached image itself?
Many thanks, Ian Mac
