Nice to have this feature, especially when VS needs to be restarted due to memory access issue.

  • VS 2012

    • Will there be a version for VS 2012?
    • Yes, if i can have more free time to develop:(
    • You can get it to install this in VS 2012 by unzipping the vsix file(it is just a plain zip archive), then modify the manifest to target 11.0 instead of 10.0.  I did this and it is working fine for me.
      I offer no warranty on compatibility with VS 2012 so do this at your own risk.
    • Any trick to get this working easily in VS 2015?
    • RE 2015, I changed manifest file like this (I have a Pro version) so probably Community folks could go by trial and error with words like "Community" etc.
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <Vsix xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" Version="1.0.0" xmlns="">

  • Save solution does not work?

    • Hi,
      Great tool, it saves us a lot of time when Visual Studio is out of memory when we compile our solution!
      However, the save solution does not work for us. It does not do a "Save All" before restarting, so we have to take care that all individual files are saved before restarting. Maybe that's intended behaviour? Might that be cause by the fact that our files are under source control?
    • Yes,save solution prompts for "save solution" only.
      Noticed request for saving all files which have been changed.Work for on it.
    • You are the best!
  • Options text errata

    • Hi 
      just had a look by chance at new options section. There seems to be an errata in second option text. Probably it should look as "Ask for saving solution (if available)"
  • Menu item icon

    • Hello
      first of all, thanks for your nice extension!
      In order to better blend with the remaining menu commands, probably the icon for this extension menu item should not have a white backgrond, but just the two revolving arrows on a transparent background.
      Don't you think?
    • Chack new version :)
    • Great! And quick! :)
