Excellent Subversion integration. We are using it since VS 2008 and we are very satisfied.

Excellent Visual Studio Add-in!
Significantly improves working with SVN.
Highly recommended.

Free license for open source developers :)

I cannot install the version 4.0.2. It gives an error saying the package is damaged. Pity I cannot rate less than 1 star.

I have the latest Tortoise SVN, which is great, but this VisualSVN is just useless.

We regret that you had trouble installing VisualSVN. We do want to help you to install and try VisualSVN extension so you could evaluate it and leave an appropriate review.

According to the description, we guess that the download was corrupted. Corrupted download can happen due to various reasons, but you can always re-download the file and most likely it will install without any errors. Use the HTTPS URL to download the latest VisualSVN 4.0.2:

If you still experience the issue, please contact us at so we could investigate this.

With best regards,

VisualSVN is definitely the best SVN plugin for Visual Studio. A couple of them set it above AnkhSVN for me: (a) quick navigation from change to change, (b) selective revert of code blocks, and (c) blame function keeps the currently selected line.
If your computer is not in a domain, it's the best choice you can make. If you have a domain joined computer, you'll have to decide for yourself whether its features are worth the price.

Deceptive marketing practice in my opinion because they want you to believe it’s free. The Community License is free if your computer IS NOT a member of an Active Directory domain. Otherwise it’s a very good product but as some have said stick with AnkhSVN which IS FREE and works just as good. The lastest version of AnkhSVN is 2.5.12266 which works with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013 (

It is not free! That sign next to the heading is misleading.
Apart from that, it works very well.

Nice except the cost.

Well, under the condition that your PC is domain-managed. Otherwise it is free to use, and it is nice.

If your PC does join a domain, the cost is then not that nice, esp. considering that AnkhSVN is completely free to all users. AnkhSVN's is as friendly to use as VisualSVN.

I think this is a good app and is worth a try. However, if do not qualify for the free community license and you do not feel like paying, install AnkhSVN instead.

Love the integration with Visual Studio. Very nice, would be cool if it integrated with 2013 Code Lens though.

I found VisualSVN the best choice as VS integration. As a keyboard oriented developer I feel that it has shortcuts for all the important functions I need. It has also the great feature of high-contrast icons for people who prefer it.

It's very nice

VisualSVN is one of two Visual Studio add-ins that I can no longer live without (the other being ReSharper for C#).

VisualSVN works very smoothly with our SVN repositories, and it adds a lot of support in the editor aside from the convenient menu access to SVN functions. I realized how essential it has become to my workflow when our license expired and I had to work without it for a few days. I was surprised at all the things I was using that I assumed were part of Visual Studio but were actually being supplied by VisualSVN. It's simple, fast, and I haven't encountered any bugs during the past 2 years that I've been using it.

Having come from a shop using visual Source safe I was used to having my Source comtrol integrated into Visual Studio to a shop using SVN I found tortoise to be a challange. Visual SVN saved me. It seemlessly integrated with Visual Studio and allows me to do everythign I need to do. I love this plugin and think it is a must have with SVN.

While most of our projects seems to go into VisualSVN, at least two of us developers have "random" projects which "will not go into VisualSVN", even though they work perfectly from Windows Explorer / Tortoise SVN.

The support response was not very good, basically being "check out your entire repository to a new location on disc", which is not particularly practical. There seem to be no troubleshooting / logging / diagnostic tools available at all.

For us the bottom line for each project is "if it works with VisualSVN, good, but if you're having difficulties, then just work out of Windows Explorer".

Just works really well!

It's nicely integrated and can be easily used.

    • Hi,
      is it possible to get an automated request for committing when I close VS?
      Or even an automated commit without a request?
    • Thank you for the feedback!
      There is no such feature in VisualSVN 3.0. We will consider implementing it in future versions however.
      Please note that you can always contact us at describing the use case so we could file it and use in future development.
