My previous performance problems have been resolved with v2.6, so I can wholeheartedly recommend this extension! Provides a lot of very useful features for anybody doing web development in Visual Studio, and it's free!
I opened a website (File > Open > Website) from a local directory. Then added new CoffeeScript file using new file dialog (Ctrl+N). The new coffeescript editor is opened with preview split screen.
Then pasted this coffee code in it http://pastebin.com/Hzt4gBtE. Once pasted, I clicked in preview screen (for JS), I got the shutting-down error.
Please review this issue. I just updated to v2.7..
Please also bring the CoffeeScript and other filetypes in new file dialog when no project or website is opened (open a new instance of VS and press Ctrl+N).
PS Its a shame that we don't have support for SCSS and SASS!
I've started facing an issue after I upgraded to version 1.6 where the @import url('../../../settings.less'); stopped working and I see the following error in the output window
Error 1 LESS: Couldn't load ../settings.less (404)
Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround?
I'm using Twitter Bootstrap (less version) and even though the compilation result is OK, while in edit mode on the .less file the // comments show a syntax error. For example "// Core variables and mixins" this would trigger an "unexpected token" syntax error. Is that a known issue?
My VS 2012 started crashing after the last update I downloaded of this extension. Anytime I would open a web project it crashes. I got this from Windows Event viewer.
Framework Version: v4.0.30319

Updated the web essentials to latest version(2.5.1), after restarting the VS the less files are unrecognized, no color code, co code hint, and compile css on save noting works. please fix and release a new patch release.
C# project ( Web essentials steals output focus ) and randomly displays the following:

I'm really missing this extension in VS2012, too!!! Please please port it over, I'm not seeing much overlap in the RC version I'm using now. I've come to rely on a lot of these features and am now frustrated that they are not available. :^(
Hi, gotta say I love your plugin, but I noticed that after the last update, visual studio 2012 is now showing "Web Essentials: Bundles updated" as the last status message after building my project (and my current one is not even a web project). Problem is it displays this even when the build failed, so I can no longer check if the build was successful or not, since I don't use the default solution errors view, and don't display the build console either..
