We just released version 1.1 of the Visual Studio Achievements Extension which addresses the issue of users with an underscore in their Channel9 username.
If your Channel9 username doesn't have an underscore, there is no need to upgrade.
If you installed version 1.0 of the extension and registered with a username that had an underscore, you will need to take the following steps.
1. Go to Tools --> Extension Manager...
2. Click Updates and update the Visual Studio Achievements Extension
3. Restart Visual Studio
4. Go to Tools --> Options --> VS Achievements and click the Change User button
5. Log in and authorize the app
Follow these steps in this exact order and you should be good to go!
@Skybladev2, if I understand correctly, it means you must have 1000 translated items in resx files. But I think there is a bug with this achievement: I only have a few localized items (about 15) in my solution, and the achievement has been unlocked...
Looking in Fiddler, the request is follow and response is "200 OK":
maybe, the currentNumer is too big?
I've noticed since I 1st installed the extension, I got 3 achievements and then since then none of the achievements have been logged (even though I've earned about 5 of them)
Looking in Fiddler, I can see the server is returning a 500 error, as follows:
<h2>Wow, that shouldn't have happened</h2>
<p>We're sorry. Something has gone terribly wrong.</p>
<p>If you would like to let us know about this, please <a href="/ContactUs">Contact Us</a> and let us know what happened.</p>
Would be nice to have it working again...
Installed this on VS2010 Premium and haven't been able to launch Visual Studio since... stay away! Deleting the extension (manually), removing all registry entries, and even repairing Visual Studio has still not fixed the issue. What a mistake.
I have premium, all the non-FxCop ones unlock and update fine. I can see fxcopcmd.exe run when I build (only when I build), yet none of the ones requiring it get triggered. I am using a very large solution, so I know some of been met, which I can find easily and verify. Any ideas?
