Multi-Language Add-In for Visual Studio


Visual Studio 2017 support

Hey Phil,

Just creating a separate thread for Visual Studio 2017 request.

Any ETA on this feature would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Nick,

I have a version which works in Visual Studio 2017 RC if I start it in the debugger, but not with a regular installation. I don't know if this is problem in Visual Studio or in my project.

When there is an official release, I should have a working version very soon.

Phil


Let me know if you want help getting in contact with the Microsoft and provide feeedback on this issue (so they can fix it).

You mention your software works in debug - does that mean the tool needs to run in debug mode somehow? or does it mean the application actually needs to run in debug mode for auto-generated resx files to work?

I'm asking because any version that's working with 2017 would be appreciated at this point (we moved to 2017 without verifying support for your tool - sorry about that).

Hi Nick

I have uploaded a version which you can try
http://www.jollans.com/MultiLanguage_2017.vsix

There are some problems installing it which I do not understand. This is my experience.

  • Install Multi-Language
  • Start visual studio
    • Multi-Language does not appear
  • Open "Extensions and updates"
    • Multi-Language is probably not there
  • Close visual studio
  • Open visual studio
    • Multi-Language does not appear
  • Open "Extensions and updates"
    • Multi-Language is in the list, but disabled
  • Enable Multi-Language
  • Close visual studio
  • Open visual studio
    • Multi-Language is finally available


I have no idea if you will see the same behavior.

Uninstalling the package also seems unreliable. The files (which are installed to a cryptic path) are not removed.

What I meant with debugging is the so called Experimantal instance which is the recommended way to debug a visual studio extension. This effectively gives you a fresh instance of visual studio with your package installed. At least this seems to work without problems.

Hi Phil,

Sorry for late response - and thanks for sharing!

I got the exact same install experience as you. Looking forward to test it out in VS17 now it's actually available :-)

Thanks a lot!


It does not seem to install on a box with vs2017. I get the following log:

I already have a more recent release candidate, which worked much better than previous one. I am now updating to the release version and I will build a new installation very soon.

I have built a new release - version 6.1.42 - which you can download with the link:
http://www.jollans.com/MultiLanguage_2017.vsix

(Same link as for the pre-release version).

Version 6.1.42 is now the 'official' release. I have removed the special version for Visual Studio 2017.

This version supports Visual Studio 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017. It does not support Visual Studio 2010 (which requires an older version of the vsixmanifest file).

If the new version causes unexpected problems, you can still download the old version with the link http://www.jollans.com/MultiLanguage_2010.vsix.
