VSIX Tutorial-Basic Extension

This tutorial will be based on Visual Studio 2012, so some menu item could differ!


Install the VsSDK and restart Visual Studio

Create The Project


Create a test project

Create a new Console Application Solution, call it TestSolution

This will be used as a test application. I usually create at the same level of the extension solution


If you go on Tools->Extension and Updates you will find the MyExtension installed.

It will not be present on the project you are debugging.


Now everything is in place!

You can download the code
