Hi, I can confirm that the issue still exists, I had the same issue with a previous version of VS Commands and resolved it by removing the registry entry.
Today I installed your latest version and VS started okay, after making changes to the VS config and saving them I restarted VS 2012. VS 2012 now will not start, I removed the Layers key again and VS will now start and functions normally.
Thank you for your feedback. The release that went out today was actually code complete three weeks ago when I was leaving for holiday. I'll fix remaining issues with the registry as soon as I am back this weekend and they should be online early next week.
After installing this extension, my VS2012 has started crashing on start-up. Found out that VS2012 has started adding a key to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers" on registry. After disabling this extension, everything went normal..
Most of the features are working. But one of the feature is failing somehow. I do have IIS based app in the solutin but when trying to attach to local IIS, receive: "Unable to find any applicaitons on local IIS and IIS Express". The same solution in VS2010 working correctly.
Hi, thank you for letting me know about attach to IIS issue, could you try to run Visual Stuidio with /Log parameter (i.e. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /Log) and email information from VSCommands output to firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks!
EDIT: It would be great if you could install latest build from http://tinyurl.com/vsc-11-2-0-3 It contains more diagnostic logging for attach to iis feature.
EDIT 2: Something is wrong with Visual Studio Gellry it seems, when you copy the link and paste it to web browser it looks ok but isn't. You may need to paste it to notepad and remove '?' which will appear there :|
I found a way to do it by debugging it using VS2012 itself. I then uninstalled from the debugger VS2012 and exited both. I was then able to bring it up normally, but the start page was unable to display. I reinstalled the latest version (4/29/2013) of VSCommands and it seems to work again.
Thank you for an update on this,
If in the future you need to start Visual Studio without extensions then you can do it using Jump List (right click on VS icon in task bar, select Safe Mode): http://imgur.com/2upykvl
Hi, I was wondering is there a feature comparison page explaining the benefits for buying a license vs using the free version?
The old page seems to be 404 now: http://vscommands.com/feature-comparison/
Hi could you email the screenshot to Jarek@squaredinfinity.com? Does this problem go away when you disable VSCommands and always comes back when you re-enable it? Do you have any other extensions installed?
Thank you in advance,
I just installed (and licensed!) my VsCommands for VS2012 ...
First thing I've noticed after I upgrated from Vs2010 is that my favorite option of all, the "File Structure" option has gone MISSING!?
Are you planning on supporting that in the Vs2012 edition of VsCommands??
I can't see the menu items for VSCommands. I started Visual Studio with /log and the ActivityLog.xml shows no errors:
<description>Successfully loaded component assembly from cache</description>
I've the latest Visual Studio 2012 update installed: Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 version: 11.0.60315.1
Plugins I also have installed: ReSharper, Productivity Power Tools and VSColorOutput.
VSCommands simple doesn't work, any clues?
I "finally" getting an Error after disabling VSColorOutput Extension:
<description>Could not load file or assembly 'SquaredInfinity.VSCommands.Features.VS11.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.</description>
Couldn't load "SquaredInfinity.VSCommands.Features.VS11.dll", but the dll exists in the given directory.
There has been recent reports about resharper breaking other extensions by offering to 'fix' them (see here for details: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RSRP-358744). If this applies to you, then you can:
- make sure you only have one instance of Visual Studio open
- uninstall VSCommands
- restart Visual Studio
- reinstall VSCommands
When you run Visual Studio with /Log parameter VSCommands creates its diagnostic log located in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0 The file is named VSCommandsLog.txt, could you email this file to email@example.com ?
Thank you in advance,
I uninstalled, restarted and reinstalled VSCommands, but unfortunately there is no log file "VSCommandsLog.txt" only the "ActivityLog.xml" will be created if i start with /Log.
I also tried devenv.exe /Setup but I think my menu is screwed up. e.g. I uninstalled VSColorOutput but the entry in the Tools->Options dialog still exists...
wierd. as soon as I write this comment, next time I start VS2012 Update 2 RTM VSCommands are working fine. don't know what happened but it was repeatable for several startups, even after an uninstall and reinstall of the VSCommands extension, then suddenly it's working again.
I find Directory Explorer very useful to drag-drop files into projects (elevated). When you first start Directory Explorer it shows the Desktop folder.
When you navigate to a different folder this is remembered throughout the VS session. The Desktop contains the "Control Panel" item. If you navigate to Control Panel, there is no way you can go back to normal folders, since the tree is not displayed, keyboard shortcuts don't work and there is no address bar or buttons to go back, up or whatever. You will have to restart VS.
Also, it would be useful if multiple instances were allowed, each with independent navigation.
IMHO, an address bar and a home/back/forward/up set of buttons would be fine to start with (global "home" for now). If you plan to add multiple instances, then I'd suggest to consider the possibility of defining a "home" directory at the project level (i.e. each project has its own associated home directory).
