Visual Assist build 2114 introduces preliminary support for Visual Studio 15 Preview 5.

Testing of Visual Assist with Visual Studio 15 is ongoing.

At this time, the suggestion and completion listbox features of Visual Assist are not supported in VS 15 Preview. Development is continuing.

There are multiple versions of Preview 5. In our testing, Preview 5 version 25802 does not report any updates to be available, but if you run the Visual Studio Installer (that was installed by installing Visual Studio 15 Preview 5), the installer reports that an update is available. As of this writing, 25807 is the latest version of Preview 5.

Though Visual Assist 2114 installs properly in our testing, we have seen cases where uninstall can leave Visual Studio 15 in a state such that it crashes during startup. We have seen similar behavior after both install and uninstall of non-Whole Tomato Software extensions found on the Visual Studio Gallery.

The bad state that causes VS to crash at startup can be resolved by [see the follow-up post] deleting the file 'privateregistry.bin' (located in the directory C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_<hash>). Deleting privateregistry.bin will cause Visual Studio to reinitialize user settings. If you use synchronized settings, then delete privateregistry.bin, start Visual Studio and let it sit for a few minutes while it pulls down your settings. If you don't use synchronized settings, then after you delete privateregistry.bin, you will have to reconfigure settings you had previously modified.

Visual Assist is not compatible with the C++ experimental feature 'Faster Project Load'; a deadlock between UI and worker threads may occur during solution load.

The bad state that causes VS to crash at startup can be resolved via these steps provided by the Visual Studio team:

1. Start "Developer Command Prompt for VS 15 Preview 5"

2. Type the following command in the console window:

devenv /updateConfiguration

3. Start Visual Studio

The crashes should no longer occur.

They have addressed the problem for the next release of Visual Studio 15.
