I cannot find its source code (though licensed GPLv2), cannot enter username & password unless I run it with elevated permissions, and cannot even send feedback due to ASP.NET configuration issue "Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster."

I have sent feedback to the site host ( regarding this misconfiguration, but I have not received any answer and it is still incorrectly configured after a week.

The software updated from v1.0 to v1.1 this morning, and the problems still exist.

  • Can you provide the source code, or fix your site?

    • Could you please provide the source code to the GPLv2-licensed extension?
      Could you please fix your site so that I can submit feedback directly rather than having to do so through the Gallery?
  • Can you upload your VSIX file?

    • Hi Marc,
      Can you upload the VSIX file for your contribution? This way users can install your contribution directly from inside Visual Studio 2010?
    • Hi Steven,
      Done! I have uploaded the extension as you suggested. I thought hosting the VSIX file on another server made no difference.
