Hi!
How about support for Visual Studio 2013? Is it in the works?

First i want to say i think this is a great product Smiley
I have looked at the trial and want to buy, but i've been having big issues with Visual Studio 2012 support.

After I have installed the plugin, Visual Studio is broken. It wont start, just hangs forever on the startup with the message "waiting for a background operation to complete".
Now, i have looked through this forum, googled, tried to check files, access and solutions. But nothing seems to help.

Can we find a solution for this problem, so i can go ahead buy the plugin? Smiley

Have you any other plug-ins/packages installed?

This sort of thing usually happens when two plug-ins/packages interfere with one another?

For Visual Studio 2012? No.
I installed a fresh copy and the Amethyst trial version right after that.

But i do have Visual Studio 2013 Express with monogame installed on the same computer, but that shouldnt matter right?

Note: Uninstalled Amethyst.. and uninstalled VS... rebooted ..then reinstalled VS again... VS works... then reinstalled Amethyst... and the problem returned. Wont start.

We have seen this before. I think it was to do with some strange VS settings in the settings files generated by a
previous plug-in. Unfortunately, uninstalling and re-installing VS does nothing about the settings - they are still
there (as are quite a few registry settings as well and other places on disk).

For me, the settings are stored in the directory 'c:\users\dermot\documents\visual studio 2012\settings' so try
renaming that directory and restart VS (don't need to uninstall). If that doesn't work, there's about three or four
other places where VS stores stuff we can look at.

Also, we will be supporting VS2013, but not for a couple of months - there doesn't seem to be enough new in VS 2013
to justify buying it right now, IMO. However, if there's enough demand then we'll do it sooner. It's not a big deal
- we just need to alter the target registry location in the installer; I don't think there's much code alteration
required. Could be 'famous last words' though!

There are a couple of other places where VS keeps things. For me, these are:


1) C:\Users\dermot\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0

2) C:\Users\dermot\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0

3) C:\Users\dermot\Documents\Visual Studio 2012

4) In the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0_Config

5) In the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0

Try renaming all of these (don't delete them - you may have something useful in them). VS will regenerate the registry keys when you run it.

Have Visual Studio 2013 installed and would like to try Amethyst with it. When is Visual Studio 2013 support planned?

Sorry about the delay in replying - I thought I'd answered this !

Yes, we will have VS2013 support available shortly. We already have it for our other product, Sapphire/RiS 3.
We've scheduled the release for about the start of June. We'll post a message here when it's available.
