It refuses to install on VS 2013 if you have .Net 4.6 installed (comes when you install VS 2015 CTP)

Very handy, but same comment as iters, very annoying pop-ups saying that the version expires in xx days, each time one opens VS.

Despite what was replied to him, this is still there. I don't believe in a system for which every plugin regularly requires attention and block the opening with a pop-up. I believe there is an update functionality in VS, it should be used instead.

Very useful tool.

I'm a fan. Hell, I even bought a license. :)

Great tool!

When connected to a web site via FTP in VS, opening a file in solution explorer leaves VS hanging, and it can only be killed in taskmanager. Disabling VSCommand resolves this.

The main reason for me to install this extension, was to avoid accidentally moving files and folders in solution explorer.

It is beyond me why Microsoft hasn't made it a feature in VS to prompt before dragging and dropping files and folders in solution explorer. It can happen very easily by accident, and can have terrible consequences when working on a website via FTP.

GOOD

The color output window coloring dose not work consistently and gave me some major headache.. After uninstalling the plugin (Tools>Extensions and Updates) the VSCommands still persisted in Fonts and Colors settings.
Would be a cool tool otherwise.

it's started to be very annoying app with popup messages.

there is a new one on VS startup.

"This version of VSCommands has expired."
"Please download latest version from vscommands.com or Extension Manager."

Expired plugin? You got to be kidding. Uninstalling....

Sorry for this popup, honest mistake on my side. It didn't even actually remove any functionality from the plugin and is now gone in latest version anyway. Cheers!

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.
Thanks
TheCoder404

That worked Thanks

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

by Rico Suter | September 22 2014

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.

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.

  • Latest update causes vs to hang on startup
    12 Posts | Last post 6:39 PM
    • I love and depend on this extension, however I had to remove it with the latest release. For some reason, vs will hang indefinitely on startup. I've run /diag and the last entry in the log is start page load complete. I've even deleted my settings in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\VSC 12 , but that didn't seem to do the trick. Any suggestions?
    • Same problem here. I had to deactivate VSCommands :(
    • You can try downloading previous version at http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/c6d1c265-7007-405c-a68b-5606af238ece/file/106247/20/ and install it over latest version.
    • @arfmach Are you sure this is a previous version? It has the exact same file checksum as the current version...
    • Hi Chris,
      
      Sorry for this issue, unfortunately I am unable to reproduce it locally.
      Could you please try to do the following:
      
      1. close all Visual Studio instances
      2. Start Visual Studio with /Log argument (e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /Log)
      3. email log files from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0
      to jarek@squaredinfinity.com
      the log files are: ActivityLog.xml and VSCommandsLog.txt
      
      thank you in advance,
      Jarek
    • @neo-san No, I'm not sure, I've just looked for this webpage in archive.org, which had, in its latest page backup, "/106247/18/" at the end of "Download" link, and current page has "/106247/21/" as part of Download link, so I've tested the URL I've posted above and, since it yelded a .vsix file, I've presumed it was a previous version. But I didn't compare the files. Sorry.
    • Jarek,
      
      I'm having the same problem as Chris. Mind if I send my log files over?
    • In vscommandslog.txt the following exception is rendered after "Process.UpTime ..."

    • Thank you for the logs!
      Could you please try this beta release https://github.com/squaredinfinity/VSCommands/blob/master/beta%20releases/3.0.14/SquaredInfinity.VSCommands.VS12.vsix
      
      Hopefuly it will fix the problem.
    • in that link where it says "This file has been truncated, but you can view the full file." click "view the full file" and this should start download.
    • That seems to have done the trick. Thanks!
    • The beta worked for me as well!
  • Code Block End Tagger - #region
    1 Posts | Last post Fri 8:12 PM
    • No need to show Code Block End Tagger for #region when it is collapsed and option "Show only when block beginning not visible" is unchecked.
      
      It is showing End Tagger right after region name (duplicated information).
  • Code Block End Tagger
    4 Posts | Last post February 25, 2015
    • Please take a look at https://getsatisfaction.com/dpstudio/topics/code-block-end-tagger-catch-as-try-and-finally-as-catch, I've detailed it there. It only happens when there is "try..catch..finally"; when only "try..catch" the problem doesn't happen.
    • got it, thanks! I'll try to reproduce locally and will let you know shortly.
      
      Kind Regards,
      Jarek
    • Additionally, I'd like to ask if there's some way to set up font name/size for Code Block End Tagger. In my VS environment (Community 2013), it is using the same font face (Consolas) but bigger size than code (I've set up Text Editor with font size 8 but I'm sure Code Block End Tagger is using font size 9).
      
      Thanks.
    • I've also noticed now that "for" End Tagger is showing parts in wrong order, like:
      
      for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
      {
          // do something
      } for (int i = 0; i++; i < count)

    • Same problem.
      I'm on 2013 update 4.
    • Download extension
      Open with 7-zip
      Edit extension.vsixmanifest
      Change line
           <Dependency Id="Microsoft.Framework.NDP" DisplayName="Microsoft .NET Framework" Version="4.5" />
      To
          <Dependency Id="Microsoft.Framework.NDP" DisplayName="Microsoft .NET Framework" MinVersion="4.5" />
      Close editor
      Save
      Update archive
      Then install
      
    • Workaround works perfect!!
    • Just figured I'd share why I had to uninstall this very useful extension.
      
      I use Unity 3D with the VS2013 development environment thanks to that extension(?)
      
      This was working fine, HOWEVER when I installed your extension it takes over the connection and when I click on a file through the Unity Editor it opens up the existing project, instead of going back to the already opened project.  (this overrides what was working directly before I installed your extension, and works immediately after when I uninstalled your extension.
      
      I can't tell you why this behavior is there, but it opens multiple versions of the same project, which without me catching it creates multiple files and causes conflicts that is no point then without would switch to the already opened project.
      
      Basically your extension needs to figure out why it causes VS to open up multiple copies of a already opened project (in vs 2013)
      
      I found the CompareTo feature useful and would love to use it again, it was very nice when I had to compare two files.  However that feature was when I asked.
    • MY bad I clicked on Add, instead of start.  Can't seem to delete.  The above post, I created a new topic, sooo sorry.
    • Same problem here. I'm pretty sure it's because I have VS2015 CTP5 installed, because on another machine where it's not installed, it works fine. I suspect VSCommands is checking for .NET 4.5.x, and only finds 4.6, so it refuses to install...
    • Thomas Levesque, absolutely! I also have VS2015 CTP5 and hence .NET 4.6
    • @Squared Infinity, are you going to do something about it? Very soon most people will have .NET 4.6 installed, and won't be able to use VSCommands...
    • Today's update fixes the problem. Thanks!
  • Close solution bug
    1 Posts | Last post February 18, 2015
    • I guess this is a bug.
      Prompt closing VS is enabled. If VS is closed from taskbar it closes without prompting and all unsaved changes are lost without any prompting
  • Your extension causes VS to open up an exiting project instead of switching too.

      *Sorry I put in the wrong discussion was confused*
    • Wow, you're right. It was working until I updated to the latest version of VS Commands (1/30 build). I've been using VS Commands as far back as when I was paying to use it, and it's worked up until now.
      
      As an extra note, I don't have any of the 2015CTP stuff installed, nor have I. Any info I can provide to help get this fixed?

    • VSPro 2013 Update 4
      VSCommands 12.3.0.9

      Enable Settings Synchronization: CHECKED
      Synchronize VSCommands Settings: CHECKED
      
      Click Save button, close VS2013.
      When I start VS2013 again, "Enable Settings Synchronization" is NOT checked, and the "Sync Dir Location" is empty.
      
      What am I overlooking?
      
      
    • Is anyone else having a problem with this on Win8.1?
      Very frustrating....
