After someone reported that ClangVSx wasn’t loading into the VS 2012 RC, I tried using the latest [New Add-in Wizard] to see what I was missing, or what had changed. Turns out, their default example add-ins don’t load either, or at least they don’t on my install.
I’m not entirely sure why yet, but the usual spot where I put AddIn files for registration –
Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Addins – wasn’t being scanned by Visual Studio. There are no obvious differences in the [Tools] -> Options -> Add-In Security panel, yet the entry I would expect to have covered that path –
%VSMYDOCUMENTS%\Addins – clearly wasn’t working.
Just incase there are any issues with loading the existing version of ClangVSx, I’ve quickly recompiled it inside 2012 using the .NET 4.5 Framework .. snip Update: It required a few code changes to get things working in 2012. A new version, along with an update to the Clang-Win32 package is coming very soon.
