That used to be very useful extension until it started to crash VS2010 Professional + SP1 when I compile one of my C++ project. It started to happen after recent update. This is 100% reproducable on my PC - I disable exactly this extension and it doesn't crash. Temporarily disable extension on my PC. Please fix.
Microsoft Visual Studio
The extension could not be installed because the following error occurred:
The extension 'VSColorOutput' requires a version of the .NET Framework that is not installed.
I have .net 4.5.2 installed.
VSColorOutput 2.0 requires .NET 4.6 or later. It would be nice to have this requirement stated on the docs, as not everyone is using Windows 10, Visual Studio 2015 or .NET Framework 4.6 yet.
Reminder: .NET 4.5.2 will become the minimum .NET 4.x version supported by Microsoft just in a few weeks. Also, Microsoft encourages developers to upgrade to .NET 4.6 or 4.6.1.
there is no Need for 4.6. I've downloded the VSColorOutput.vsix, expanded it, changed the SupportedFrameworkRuntimeEdition entry in extension.vsixmanifest back to 4.5, created a new zip and renamed it back to VSColorOutput.vsix and it installs fine and works fine with .net 4.5.2
Nice one, Mike, very useful. It's a shame color settings have no effect. Changing regular expressions and patterns list works as expected, but the colors are always default. Can you please have a look at the problem? Thank you!
If you use the VS 2015 Dark Theme and your output starts showing a white background then go to Tools/Options/Fonts and Colors and for the VSColorOutput items set the background to custom and use RGB 30, 30, 30.
The color scheme of text background color by VSColorOutput in VS output window is not correct after changing the visual studio theme to dark, and then later back to blue. The background colors of the text keep behaving like it would be the dark VS scheme.
Hi, I'm using VSColorOutput with Dark theme in VS2012. I tried to change the color settings in Fonts and Colors but it does't work, but some color does applied to the Output Window. I just cannot apply my custom settings, even I just want to change the foreground color for Information category. Is that any open I can open to show the diagnosis info to check whether the settings for VSColorOutput are correct?
What's new on the latest version (1.4.8) compared with the version 1.4.6? We use the tool in a somewhat large development environment and we avoid to install new versions unless the benefits are greater than the risks.
Hi, i put my tdd running as post build event.
when i have an error like
2> myCppFile(172): error in "myTest": check service.Children ().size () == 0 failed [1 != 0]
it colors the line as green instead read as expected
thank you in advance for your effort we love your extension
other little suggestion
these line should not be in red
3>PocoFoundationmtd32.lib(Exception.obj) : warning LNK4099: PDB 'pocofoundationmtd.pdb' was not found with 'PocoFoundationmtd32.lib(Exception.obj)' or at 'myfilePath\pocofoundationmtd.pdb'; linking object as if no debug info
3> *** 1 failure detected in test suite "Master Test Suite"
it would also be great to can customize regex and
