The SharePoint 2010 Visual Studio 2010 Extensions project (CKSDEV) is a collection of Visual Studio templates, Server Explorer extensions and tools providing accelerated SharePoint 2010 development based on Microsoft's new SharePoint 2010 development tools.
Nice, but most of us have moved on to VS 2012. When are you guys going to do the same? CKSDEV will install through the gallery on VS 2012 (what's going on there?) but is broken due to missing dependencies.
Hi, CKSDEV (foundation) installs and appears to (mostly) work on VS 2012 but some errors occur when trying to use certain templates, like "content type with event receiver." The step fails with an exception trying to load version 10.0.0.0 of some of the VSSDK assemblies.
What's the best way to fix this? Use binding redirects (where? devenv.exe.config?) or edit the templates to reference 188.8.131.52 versions? (again, where?) and finally: Are there any plans to update this for VS 2012? The enhancements in VS for sharepoint projects are too large to ignore - I'm never going back to VS 2010... :)
Ok, so I found this assembly in: ~\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Extensions\z3l4fdss.lqf\ - I wonder why it is failing to load. It appears to be strongly named but it is not in the GAC. I put into the 4.0 GAC, and it still failed. I looked closer at the clr loader exceptions and it's failing to load a TON of dependencies: Microsoft.VisualStudio.SharePoint.Wsp 10.0.0.0, Microsoft.WizardsFrameowkr 184.108.40.206 etc etc.
My offshore developer created a Webservice that runs under SharePoint. Problem is that when I run the VS project, I get an error because I do not have the SP environment installed. How can I get around this? Any help would be appreciated. I am been searching for a way to download the SP project templates to no avail.
In VS 2010, the CKSDev for Foundation was installed.On trying to Import a WSBuilder project "Import WSPBUilder Project" template, I am receiving the following error:
Error: This template attempted to load component assembly 'CKS.Dev.WCT',Version = 220.127.116.11,Culture= neutral,Publickeytoken=487fd6341a5c701f'.For more information on this problem and how to enable template, please see documentation on Customizing Project Templates.
Could you please help to fix this error?
Thanks for the question. It looks like a small mistake in the project templates has unfortunately got through testing. Apologies.
The proj file is held in a zip in the local profile something like:
C:\Users\administrator.SP2010\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions\CKSDev Team\CKS - Development Tools Edition (WCT)\18.104.22.168\P\CSharp\SharePoint\SharePoint14\1033\WSPProjImport
To manually update extract the project vstemplate and update the version number for the wizard to 22.214.171.124 and add this file back into the zip. Restart VS2010 and it should now work. I will complete the fix and update the current download ASAP.
Yup, I've just run into this error, but unfortunately the change you describe doesn't seem to have resolved it. I can see the vstemplate file contains a 126.96.36.199, and I've changed that to 188.8.131.52 . However, Visual Studio continues to report a problem getting the v184.108.40.206 file. I have restarted it.
If I download this, will I be able to develop custom web-parts and so on without having to download a local sharepoint environment? Sorry for the stupid question, but I am really new to the sharepoint development world.
You will still need a local SharePoint installation running on the Dev box to perform any SharePoint development with the Visual Studio 2010 tools. CKSDev is an extension to those tools so the same holds true.
