This is an awesome toolset.

bad one.

it changes the behavior of building....

by revbones | February 10 2014

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.

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.

I cannot live without the output window highlighting, debug as, and solutions badges. The solution badges feature alone makes this worthwhile - I often have a half dozen or more instance of Visual Studio open and being able to identify which is which is a life-saver.

by Tribute 2 PanterA | October 08 2013

like this a bunch. thanks.

by NoiZy83 | July 19 2013

I used the new version, but like you said, I still have this problem, but very often on many files ;(
But if you work on it, I will wait.

Kind regards

Could you let me know if the problem is still there with the latest release ( ?
Couple of fixes went in with it and it seems that it's working well now.

Thank you,

Same problem with Portuguese. Don't start. Only in safemode

Sorry, not found option to reply directly to the message, but, my version of Windows 8 is Portuguese Brazil (Preview Windows 8.1) and Visual Studio 2013 only. Clean Install.

Hi! Thank you again for letting me know about this issue. Latest release should fix this. Cheers!

    • "VSCommands is developed by a small group of passionate developers who believe coding should be fun and with right tools nothing is impossible! Since its first release in 2010, VSCommands has been downloaded over 2,000,000 times and is used daily by tens of thousands of developers worldwide."
      That's all great, but, 
    • That's a valid point.
      There was a brief features description before, but it seems that it might have been removed in error. I'll update it shortly.

    • The Visual Studio Gallery lists this extension as "free", however, on the homepage I can find various purchase options. Is the VSCommands plugin free or not free?
      Is "Lite" the free version and "Pro" the to-purchase version? If yes, why is the downloadable product version at VS-Gallery the Pro version?

    • Hello!
      I'm using VisualSVN instead of AnkhSVN. Please add support for this as well. Could also be the closest denomitor of just going with a working-copy analysis.
      Best regards, Michael
    • Hi Michael,
      Latest version should support VisualSVN.
      Please give it a go and let me know if there are any issues or if you have any suggestions.
      Thank you,
    • Hi Jarek!
      It works now. Many thanks!
      I noticed that the default regex for the branch does not handle 'trunk'. This resulted in my soluton name showing up as branch name and solution name in the solution window title. The following regex covers trunk as well as branches:

  • VSCommands License activation issue for MSVS 2013
    3 Posts | Last post January 04, 2014
    • Hi,
      I am facing license activation issue for VSCommands( for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013. 
      Issue : For activating VSCommands, i need to browse license file. After browsing file, i need to relaunch the Visual Studio and then only vscommands activation gets reflected. 
      Can anyone please explain : 
      1. Why the application activation is not getting reflected as soon as i browse the license file ?
      2. Why we need to relaunch the Visual Studio to reflect the activation changes and if so may i know the process name causing this behaviour ?
      3. Is there any alternative way to install license so that activation will be reflected in first launch of Visual Studio itself ?
    • Hi Jarek,
      Can you please help me in this issue.
      It is a bit urgent.
    • Hi!
      Sorry for not getting to you earlier, I was away for Christmas/New Year with very limited access to internet.
      You can automatically deploy your license by following these steps (only works with Site and Enterprise licenses):
      1. Place license file in Documents\Visual Studio 2012 directory
          %UserProfile%\My Documents\Visual Studio 2012
      2. Next time Visual Studio starts it will apply the license file
      At the moment there's no way to do it without restarts though, if you can give me more details about your scenario then I can change it for you in next release.

  • Azure + Debug commands

    • Hi,
      Thanks for the extension! 
      There seems to be a bug: I can't use right click -> Debug -> Start Without Debugging on an Azure project (i.e. a project that defines two cloud services) -- nothing at all happens. I can use it on other project types, so I'm assuming this one is just not supported; it'd be great if you could fix this. :-)
