Absolutely perfect. Anyway to upgrade it and get it to work with VS 2012?

I'm so much used to have this companion that I have now problems to work without it under VS2012. I'm really looking forward the VS2012 compatible version.

path erro! why?

Been using zencoding in Notepad++ and SublimeText and now in VS, can't believe my luck. It works as expected and comes with an extensive drop down menu so you can access all that zen goodness without knowing every shortcut by heart!

Excellent! Full support for Zen Coding.

I love ZenCoding on Notepad++ and always used it to copy paste structures into VS. Actually having ZenCoding in VS is awesome and I can't believe I had not searched for a plugin before! If you spend any time in VS doing HTML/CSS, you want to use ZenCoding!

    • This looks like an excellent extension, but I only have the free version of studio. I don't think this will work for me, but I have to ask. Is there a workaround for getting it to install on Web Developer Express? Thanks

    • Hey,
      Looking forward to the VS2012 release.
      Meanwhile, i "cheated" it into installing on vs2012 by editing the manifest (just to play with it a little).
      I'm getting an error "The path is not of a legal form" if i try to 'zencode' expressions when i edit an .html file outside the solution.
      Can you try adding support for standalone files? or is it a references issue?
      hope it's possible!
      Thanks ahead, you're awesome.
