VS 2010 Compatibility

Jun 29, 2010 at 1:49 PM

Hi,

Is this add-in compatible with VS 2010 ?

With a minor adjustment, it *seems* to work in 2010, with the very very limited testing that I did. Open up "VLH2005.addin" in your text editor of choice. Near the very top is a section called "HostApplication", with an element containing 9.0 as its data. Change that to 10.0, and save the file. VS2010 picks it right up, and it shows up under the tools menu. Use it with a bit of caution of course.. hasn't been updated in quite some time unfortunately, but so far, it seems to be doing the trick.

Hello,

with Windows7 64bit and VS2010 I found I had to manually install VLH2005.dll and VLH2005.AddIn to C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Addins. Initially this lead to an error Message. I then went back to the VLH2005.dll called up it's properties (context menu) and "Allowed" the access to this library. This is in the lower portion of the "General" tab under "Security". It might be called differently in English - on my German Windows it is unter "Allgemein/Sicherheit/Zulassen". Windows 7 restricts access to this library because it is from an unknwon source.

I tried to load it with changed VLH2005.addin as described above. But starting VS2010 I get the following error. I get the same error with VS2008. An also when I use the installtion setup. so it must be a principial error!?

Can anyone help me. I really miss this feature, trying out some things or going back, after I had made an mistake. Thanks!

The Addin could not be loaded, or there was an exception

Errornumber: 80131515

Original text in German:

Das Addin konnte nicht geladen werden, oder es hat eine Ausnahem ausgelöst

Fehlermldg. Unbekannter Fehler

Fehlernumer: 80131515

Where can I find this VLH2005.addin file? I can't find a file called VLH2005* or VLH2008* on my hard drive after running the installer.

After installation I found it in : c:\winnt\system32\Visual Studio 2008\Addins

Looks like that path doesn't exist in Win7, I suspect that the same path in Win7/VS2010 is: 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE

However the .addin file isn't there and I can't find it on my drive after installing this tool. Maybe I can find a download that doesn't have an installer and just mod the files then copy them into that folder.

I spend some time and tried a lot of things, but it doesn't work. Always the mentioned error. But if you like to try it, I can send the files to you. But I don't  know it PM ist possible in this system!?

 

b.t.w. I voted for this feature to apply in  Resharper. Perhaps they will do this.

Hi all,

I just want to summarise how to get it working for VS 2010:

You need to go to downloads page and download "VLH2005-beta-3.0.0-manual-install.zip". There are 2 files:
-VLH2005.AddIn
-VLH2005.dll

Then you need to copy both of them into C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Addins (that is for win7)
NOTE: "Addins" folder isn't there by default, so you need to create it manually.

Last thing to do is to modify VLH2005.AddIn file. It is needed to update versions to <Version>10.0</Version>

That it. Works fine!

Thanks
