Visual Studio 11 Beta support

Mar 12, 2012 at 5:35 PM


Are you planning to add the support for Visual Studio 11 Beta soon? I guess the current stable version (the one working with VS2010) would also work with VS11 if the installer would make the correct adjustments.

It's very easy to create own installer. Just take current BuildVersionIncrement_VS2010.VSI (that in fact is a zip archive) and do the following :

1. Unpack BuildVersionIncrement_VS2010.VSI

2. Open BuildVersionIncrement.AddIn (it's XML file) with notepad

3. Find line "<Version>10.0</Version>" and change the number 10.0 to, you guessed it, 11.0

4. Save this changes.

5. Create zip archive called BuildVersionIncrement_VS2011.VSI that contains your modified BuildVersionIncrement.AddIn and two other files that are present in older installer (BuildVersionIncrement.dll, BuildVersionIncrement.vscontent)

The Installer created this way should work with new VS 11 Beta ;)
