Build 1812 is an early beta build of Visual Assist X for Visual Studio 2010 RC. Because we have no build that supports Visual Studio 2010 RC, we are posting this even though we are still at work on full support for the RC. It can be installed from:
The Visual Studio Version Selector should automatically run upon clicking the download link if Visual Studio 2010 RC has been installed. If not, save the file and run it on a system that does have Visual Studio 2010 RC installed. No administrative privileges are required to install. Visual Assist X build 1812 does not support Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.
Installing a vsix will only affect Visual Studio 2010. Previous releases of Visual Assist X installed in other versions of Visual Studio will be unaffected by this installation.
If you are running Visual Studio 2010 with administrative privileges, you will need to explicitly allow extensions to run:
Tools | Options | Environment | Extension Manager | "Load per user extensions when running as administrator"
Support for Visual Studio 2010 is ongoing.
Some VA features in VS2010 now operate a little differently compared to other versions of Visual Studio.
- VA does not underline source code in C/C++.
- C++ include directories are now project defined. VA will use the platform include directories defined in your project unless you specifically change the VA Platform option to Custom.
- If you have automatic symbol reference highlighting enabled in both VA and in C#, VA will not highlight in C# files. Disable the IDE option (Tools | Options | Text Editor | C#) if you prefer VA highlight behavior.
- If coloring of tooltips is enabled, the default colors rather than your colors are used (confirmed bug in VS).
- Although background color items can be set in the IDE Options dlg, the colors will not be used in non-editor windows (applies to Class, Method, Variable, Macro / Enum items).
A short, incomplete list of known issues:
- Colors used by VA may be incorrect after install. If this occurs, open the Fonts and Colors page of the IDE Options dialog and then press enter.
- A 'Cannot set allocations' message sometimes appears at startup. If this occurs, please contact us: http://www.wholetomato.com/support/contact.asp
