Me and 6 others at our organization have tried to download this file. The file only downloads 1,101KB to 1,108KB and says it is finished. Any suggestions? We are able to download gigs of data without any problem, it just happened to be this file.

That worked Thanks

The file is not a valid VSIX package. ---> System.IO.FileFormatException:
File contains corrupted data. ??

On... Intel Win7x64 Ent. VS2013 Update 3

Hi, sorry for the issue.
It seems that perhaps file was corrupted during download? could you try to download and install again?

Awesome. Dev responded to my email very quick and fixed my problem in a day...

Thanks so much.

bad one.

it changes the behavior of building....

by brainchest | April 16 2014

This is an awesome toolset.

Works great. Only complaint is that the speed that the delay and speed for showing the main menu bar (if it is hidden) is not configurable.

As it stands, the delay is pretty annoying, and then you still have to wait for the animation to finish.

Aside from that little annoyance, a great and indispensable add-in.

Put cursor in StackOverflow search box in the title bar

Click "Close" on Visual Studio.
Doesn't close.

Shrink VS window, go to Options. Can't scroll the page. On my machine even maximized I can't show everything that's available to be set. In particular on the Solution Badges sheet

All valid points!
Both of those issues have been fixed internally and will go live with next release.

Works perfect, thank you.

Installed it yet to use

Essential for any developer, always the first thing I install.

by Nico.Lubbers | December 17 2013

One of my must have extensions. Great features on free edition.

by Binori | November 25 2013

Must have for VS users. Thx for your work.

by Krishna Nadiminti | November 23 2013

Awesome set of extensions - thanks for making this. I'm a huge fan.

Any chance we can customize the colours for the output window?

Thanks, you can customize colours from Tool | Options | Environment | Fonts And Colors | VSCommands (more details: http://vscommands.squaredinfinity.com/features#outputwindow-enhancements)

This is for me as an obvious part of Visual Studio.

  • Can't download
    5 Posts | Last post 7:41 PM
    • I've tried from Visual Studio, Chrome, and can't download.  
      Visual Studio: "The extension could not be installed because the following error occurred: An exception occurred during a WebClient request"
      IE: "SquaredInfinity.VSCommands.VS12.vsix couldn't be downloaded."
      Chrome: Download terminates after ~1MB.  Trying to run it results in "Installation Failed.  The installation was unable to install the extension... The file is not a valid VSIX package."
    • Getting this error when downloading
      Unable to download ...inity.VSCommands.VS12.vsix from ...iogallery.msdn.microsoft.com.
      The connection with the server was reset
    • Yes malikarshad, it appears as though the download site is sending a RESET packet about 1MB into the download.
    • You can now also download latest version from here: http://1drv.ms/1sV8eVk
    • Jarek, that link worked.  Thank you!
  • New version cannot boot visual studio
    11 Posts | Last post 2:47 PM
    • I have installed new version. But, Visual Studio can't boot by assert message.
      I am using Visual Studio 2013 SP3 (Japanese)
      Windows 8.1
    • Same here, I'm using Windows 8.1 English
    • same problem. VS Crashes every booting up. Uninstalling and then reinstalling this version of VSCommand is helpless.
    • Same here, Windows 8.1 English:
    • Same here "Unable to parse key combination"
    • It makes my visual studio crash. It's a very abjective version.
    • Thank you all for letting me know about this issue so quickly, I believe that it should now be resolved in latest version. Thanks!
    • 2 Jarek Kardas: Thank you for fast fix! Amazing extension.
    • Newest version works perfectly for me. Idea for those with a parsing error: Try to delete your VSCommands sync files.
    • I have disabled this extension because after the upgrade, I am forced to have a "vscommands" pane opened up every time VS starts.
      If the developer allows us to disable this, I would welcome the tool back as there are great features, but I will not tolerate a useless pane opening every time VS starts.
    • @rghammes, can you let me know what you mean by 'vscommands pane' ? perhaps you can send a screenshot to jarek@squaredinfinity.com ?
  • VSCommander not compatible message
    8 Posts | Last post 2:47 PM
    • I have just got a message that says this version of VSCommander is no longer compatible with Visual Studio as of 20/09/2014 00:00:00 and suggests I get an update.  The version installed is the latest.  I uninstalled and reinstalled and get the same message.
    • I have started getting this message too.  Screenshot: http://imgur.com/gW4SphD.png
    • Same here.
    • Same here. Looks like the developer forgot to somehow update either the extension expiration date or the website about this change. The website looks outdated though (not even linking to VS2013 extension on main page).
    • Hi guys,
      sorry for the issue, I'm working on it right now.
      Will update very shortly.
    • Thank you Jarek for such a quick response to the issue.

  • Jump list

    • Hello!
      How can I customize jump-list labels? I need to display solution name, branch and solution directory.
  • Can't see the Compare Files options in Solution Explorer?
    2 Posts | Last post September 12, 2014
    • Hello, I'm using VS2013 and VSCommands and I can't see the compare files feature. Is it not in this version? Is it paid only?
    • Fyi, I did check my options under IDE Enhancements -> Solution Explorer and I do not see anything related to comparing files
  • Solution Badges partially broken in VS2013 Update 3
    1 Posts | Last post August 06, 2014
    • Since I upgraded to VS2013 Update 3, the Git branch name is no longer displayed:
      - in the main window title
      - in the solution explorer window title
      However I can still see it in the taskbar jump list and Windows task switcher (Alt-Tab).
      For some reason, it still works for SVN (using AnkhSVN, if it matters); the problem only occurs with Git (haven't tried Mercurial and TFS).
  • Dark Theme StackOverflow Panel Colour Issues
    1 Posts | Last post July 18, 2014
    • Hey there,
      I recently was told about this extension and wanted to try it out.  I saw the inbuilt stack overflow search and jumped for joy, until I found that:
      a) it doesn't work well with the dark theme enabled i.e. can't read links as they are too dark etc.
      b) there doesn't seem to be anyway, that I've found yet, to change the colours for this panel.
      So I was wondering if there is a way to change the colours here so that I can read the results?
  • License for VSCommand Pro 11
    2 Posts | Last post June 27, 2014
    • Hello, if I purchase a license for VSCommands Pro 11 to use in Visual Studio 2013, may I also use the license for VSCommands Pro 10 for Visual Studio 2010?  At work we're still on 2010, but will be moving to 2013 (or newer) in the near future.  I was hoping to avoid having to purchase 2 licenses (one for each version if one will work with both).
      Thank you
    • Hi,
      From what i could read on their website, you'll have to buy a license for each VS version you use....
      So if you're planning to change you VS version in a near future i would recommand to wait before purchasing the license.
  • Aero Snap behaviour override
    1 Posts | Last post June 18, 2014
    • Hi,
      In IDE Ehancement > Keyboard, i checked "allow Keyboard enhancements" and "Change [Windows Key + arrow] Behaviour"
      The problem now is that Aero snap still moves the VS Window all around my desktop when usgin the "Windows + arrow" combination.
      For this option to work correctly i have to also check the "Disable Aero Snap" option too.
      Is that a bug ?
      If not, you should present "Change [Windows Key + arrow] Behaviour" as a functionality of the "Disable Aero snap" feature, because the way it is now can be confusive.
      Thanks for the answers
  • Minor bug / error when using Productivity Power Pack 2013
    1 Posts | Last post June 11, 2014
    • Just an FYI, if one sets the Code Block End Tagger (which BTW is awesome) to navigate on double-click and also has Syntactic Line Compression in Microsoft's Productivity Power Pack 2013 enabled (which it is by default), the double-click is NOT navigating.  I disabled Syntactic Line Compression and it works now.  Perhaps there is some workaround from your end to enable compatibility between the two, but for the moment being able to navigate is more important to me than the line compression afforded by MS's extension.
