There is a bug in the "Show All Files" feature. In PowerCommands, this feature toggles all projects in the solution, instead of OOB only the current project. This sounds like a good idea, but:
Say you have a solution with a couple of projects. Say you hit this button, you now show all files in your current projects. So far so good.
Now say you add a new project. Now you want to also see all files in this one. So you hit the enhanced Show All Files button: but it simply iterates through all the projects and flips that bit, so that you will always have projects in differing states and cannot have them all set the same way.
In other words, you cannot restrict Show All Files to one project.
It also seems like this setting gets "forgotten" between Visual Studio sessions. Since installing this, I find myself frequently toggling this where I *know* I already did it.
This is annoying enough that I uninstalled PowerCommands. It's too bad, because I liked the Collapse Projects feature; but the DPack extension also offers this as well as much else that is useful.
When I'm trying to paste a reference which defined with $(Configuration) key (e.g. References\$(Configuration)\MyAssembly.dll) There is a COM exception and no reference is pasted (copy isn't throw exception)
I've been using this tool for many years, starting of yesterday the 'Open Command Prompt' function isn't working anymore. A message box with this error is shown 'Illegal characters in path.'.
Does anyone have an idea what is causing this? How it can be solved?
Thanks for the help.
How about releasing the source code for this so the community can start fixing bugs? When I try to copy and paste project references between projects I get, "Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component". Any ideas? It doesn't look like there is any active work being put into this toolset, it would be great if you released the code or set up a distributed source control for it so we could fix bugs and push them back up.
Select more than twenty line of code and execute email code snippet command. Outlook opens compose window with lesser content of selected code.
It seems like outlook doesn't accept the larger commandline body.
I am using outlook 2010 and visual studio 2010.
This extension is great except that it messes up my debug view for test execution. The moment I start debugging a test with this extension installed, the open editor windows disappear forever. Clicking the source files do not bring up the editor any more, even if debugging completes without hitting a breakpoint. If a breakpoint is hit, there is no way to proceed as you can't see which breakpoint was hit.
Is this a known issue with any recommended workaround?
I'm not sure what's changed, but when I save a class file with the "Remove and Sort Usings on save" option checked, the "System." directives also get ordered alphabetically, whereas they were staying at the top. Is there some external (to the extension) setting that's used for deciding on the ordering?
I keep getting this message when compiling a Windows Store App:
"Your project or one of its references does not currently build. If you continue with this operation, required usings may be removed."
How can i definitively remove it?
I get the error message on installation:
This extension is not installable on any currently installed products.
Ok this is not new... but I do NOT use VS 2010 Express! I use Vs 2010 Pro with SP1.
