Simple and brilliant. Recommending connecting this plugin to a keyboard shortcut for quick web debugging

i am getting "Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.11.0, Version=" error. I am trying to find out why

This is the king of one click attachment initiators. Even better, you don't need to select which w3wp.exe process, it just knows. Spiffy.

I customized my toolbar to include Trevor as an icon I can just click on.

Thank you very much for this.

Like this! Only thing that lacks is the possibility to select which w3wp.exe task should be attached to if running multiple instances

Does what it claims cleanly and with no caveats.
This is a feature that VS should already have and I'm glad Mr. Piotrowski filled in this gap.

Super odd name though :)

  • Not working with VS2013 after updating to 3.0

    • Since the update, this extension doesn't work for me in VS 2013. Ideas?
    • Should be working right now. Please check.
    • Hmm, nope, still doesn't seem to work. It installs fine, but when I go to Tools > Trevor, it doesn't do anything.
    • jakelauer2 please check the things below:
      - run VS as Administrator
      - site should be configured on local IIS and the IIS should be up and running (look for w3wp.exe processes in Tas Manager)
      - try to set up some breakpoint(s) in the code
      If still not working please let me know about the exact version of VS you are using.
    • Hi, i have same problem, worked fine till trevor update, use  Premium 2013 update 4 (12.0.31101.00)
    • Hi Sebastian,
      I tried too. I have VS2012 update 5 also installed and after that it doesnt work also.
      Reinstalled the plugin, removed and rebooted pc but nothing seems to help.
      Version: 12.0.40629.00 update 5
    • Hi,
      Count me in as having problems. I captured the following log:
      I guess the shell version has been updated?
    • This issue is related to changes in the vsixmanifest file. Now I've changed the file back to previous version but left the support for VS2015, as always works on my machine ;) waiting for your feedback..
    • Sebastian,
      I tried the current version and am having the same problem as Stijn, with the same log entries. My vsixmanifest file makes no reference to the VisualStudio.Shell DLL.
    • Unfortunately the new version did not work for me either. I uninstalled Trevor, quit VS, then installed the new version, but I still get the same error as before in the log.
    • i have done all of the above and nothing works either...I can't get Trevor to work.
