Very simply and does what it says it does. I have a 90 project solution and this has helped a lot with catching problems.

Very useful tool when I'm dealing with larger solutions, get's me fixing issues sooner rather than later.

Very nice extension. After Microsoft have been removed the macros in Visual Studio 2012, I was bored to don't have this feature. When you have a big solution with many projects, it help to don't have to wait before the entire process even if your firsts projects failed.

Thank you again!

Faster turnaround in my work. So easy. Nice.

The Build menu check option is a nice touch.

Works like a charm! Thanks so much.

You made my day!

When working on solutions that contain 50+ projects, this saves us a lot of time. Thank you for making such a useful plug-in.

I love this addon. My only criticisim is it defaults to being checked. It would be nice if there were some settings to allow it to be easier to use. I rarely want it on a rebuild and it would be nice to be a seperate build button on the toolbar instead of a checkbox. It does perform well and does not seem to have any problems with memory leaks or conflicts with other extentions. All in all it is a great extention. It would be perfect with a few small updates.

Saves lots of lost time every week, works great.

Like the best ideas, deceptively simple and very effective. I appreciate that the author spent the time to make it "...activate the error window after cancelling the build", so you get straight to the problem.

Nothing much to say other than it works great!

  • Doesn't work for Visual studio 2012

    • the "Stop Build on first error" option doesn't show up after I installed it.
      Have tried to reinstall.
    • Hi
      I haven't heard of that happening before. I'm running it myself on VS2012 without problems. What service pack of VS are you on?
    • I was having this problem in VS2013.  I fixed it by searching ("Quick Launch" in the upper right hand corner) for "Stop On First Build Error."  Then I toggled both the options from False to True.  After that, the options appeared in my Build menu, and didn't disappear when I unchecked them.
    • I installed on a VS 2013 Ultimate edition and it does not work. It kept compiling after the first error. I thought it was suppose to stop. (And yes I do have the Stop on First error selected in the build menu).
    • Hi Peter
      Doesn't it stop at all? Also, despite the name it doesn't stop immediately on first error, it stops after the first project has failed, i.e. it doesn't try to build additional projects after one has failed. Does it try to build all projects for you, even with the "Stop on first build error" option checked?
    • Yes it compiles through multiple projects -- does not stop after first project fails. Sorry for being unclear.
