Can you do it for VS2015 too? Or maybe include it in "Productivity Power Tools 2015" (

Please? :)

Copy and paste class feature does not work with C++ classes. This was my primary motivation for installing this. I do not get the "Copy class" menu item when right clicking a class in the solution explorer. Using VS1010 Pro SP1.

Great tools, when they work. There are bugs, especially with Copy/Paste References, which doesn't work at all (E_FAIL), and it appears no there has been no work on the project for 2.5 years. Release the source to the community so we can update it and fix bugs.

  • Reference Copy/Paste does not work on project references
    5 Posts | Last post April 02, 2015
    • 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.

  • Open Command Prompt fails
    1 Posts | Last post March 21, 2014
    • 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.
  • Email Code snippet is not working properly.
    1 Posts | Last post July 31, 2013
    • 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.

  • Debug view messed up?
    1 Posts | Last post April 09, 2013
    • 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?
  • "Remove and Sort Usings on save" ordering change
    1 Posts | Last post February 06, 2013
    • 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'm getting the same anoying message every time I save determine source file.
      How can we solve this?

      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.
