I added this extension in Visual Studio 2015 to test, the more it disables all native commands Visual Studio, able to remove Tools / Extension and Updates, plus Visual Studio did not return as before, not complete anything in cshtml code, does anyone have a solution so you do not need to reinstall visual studio, I will never install this garbage.
After installing this version, VS fails to start without any more information about the error. I had to use Safe mode to uninstall in order to keep working. Support was very unhelpful given that the only solution provided was to "uninstall"
Installed on VS2013 update 5, and visual studio is now hung, fails to start. Uninstalled VS2013, reinstalled VS2013 and update 5 and now I can at least start up VS2013. But now cannot launch typescript projects anymore, browser fails to load index.html. Appears web essentials is still installed. Cannot find any way to uninstall web essentials. Maybe have to reinstall windows or something, very undesirable.
something happened when I tried to install this on vs2015 enterprise and now I can not get any of the html / cshtml and related filetypes to work in the editor. I have tried to uninstall visual studio and clean up every file and registry item I could find and I am still broken. goin to have to call Microsoft support to get this fixed it looks like.
when it install it gave a pointer error when I tried to open the files. now after uninstalling vs if I try to install this it says that the html modules are not installed. but the vs installer says they are installed. some where some file or reg key is trashed but where ? what to do to fix this???
I am getting the below error when I try to install Web Essentials on VS 2013 Community Edition.
The extension 'Web Essentials 2013 for Update 2' requires a version of the .NET Framework that is not installed.
I have installed Visual Studio 2013 in my laptop. I have downloaded Web Essentials 2013.5 from above link. While installing I got an the following error. Am I missing anything here?
4/19/2016 5:18:26 PM - VSIXInstaller.NoApplicableSKUsException: This extension is not installable on any currently installed products.
I have VS 2013 update 4. I set the following options:
Tools->Options->Web Essentials->LESS->Compile Files on build
but they seem to have no effect. I was also looking for MsBuild tasks or command line tools to force web essentials JS bundle generation and less compilation and did not find any.
I am on a verge of abandoning WE and moving to something else. If it can't generate files on build, I can't use it in production development.
I've inherited a project that uses Web Essentials 2013 and up until recently everything seems to have worked fine.
Any idea what is causing this?
ok i think i got it. so not sure why, but all of a sudden the ordering of the files doesn't seem to matter and variables and functions that aren't encapsulated suddenly have started being placed at the top of the file as part of the minification process.

I try to bundle some scripts I have in my package project, the option displays but is not able to to generate properly the bundle. It only creates an empty bundle file. If I tried with a web or MVC project it works like a charm but I cannot make it to work with that project type which is mainly what I need it for
