Any plans for Visual studio 2012 ?

Aug 14, 2012 at 2:56 AM

The RTM is out already so is there any plans for supporting it ?

I second this!  This extension needs to be updated to support VS 2012 :)

Ditto. :)

Ditto again... and a question about PowerGUI versions: will the extension work with the paid PowerGUI Pro installed rather than the free version? Thanks!

Yes, We need this awesome extension for VS 2012 RTM. Right now it says: "PowerGUI is not installed. You must download and install PowerGUI before using this extension. I just installed version 1.6.1... :(

I just not read the message correctly: it states that PowerGUI must be installed. Doh... This post show how to use it:

To download PowerGUI, go here:

1.6.1 should work. 

If not I will have to look at it this evening!

It's working with VS 2012 RTM! I think everybody is forgetting to install PowerGUI first (as was my case). Visual Studio extension is just an "extension", that is, it's a separate product that depends on PowerGUI.

I've written about it here (under the section Bonus):

Congrats for this amazing product. :)

Also installed 1.6.1 with PowerGui 3.2.  Got the same error as above "PowerGUI is not installed..." but it went away after I restarted my machine.

Great project Adam.  Thanks!

Please ... Please ... Please ...
Update the extension to support Visual Studio 2012.

Whoa... it hasn't been done yet?

It works for me. Not perfect (CTRL-F doesn’t work for example) but it is still way better than OOB Visual Studio’s treatment of PowerShell files.
