    I've downloaded  the latest version of the plugin and in my PC have VS 2012 Ultimate and VS2013 Ultimate installed. The plugin installs OK on VS2012 but can't install in VS 2013 and if i run two times the extension installer says that already installed for all platforms.

    Thanks in Advance

    Hi Javierdj,

    We have not been able to reproduce such a problem in our local tests. Can you check whether the Icenium extension shows as installed in the Tools -> "Extensions and Updates" of Visual Studio 2013?

    If it does not show, please search for Icenium and install it from there. If the installation from VS fails, are there any errors in its logs/output? If the problem persist. we have the following suggestions:

    • Provide us with logs from VS after the crash occurs. Turn on the tracing of the VS IDE and perform again the steps that cause the crash. Below is the XML you need to add to the devenv.exe.config file:
      <?xml version ="1.0"?>
       <configuration>
           ...
           <system.diagnostics>
               <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="4">
                 <listeners>
                   <add name="myListener" type="System.Diagnostics.TextWriterTraceListener" initializeData="c:\temp\DEVENV.LOG" />              
                   <remove name="Default" />
                 </listeners>
               </trace>
           </system.diagnostics>
       </configuration>

      This file usually resides under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE directory (don't forget to make a backup copy before modifying it).

    • Start Visual Studio with the log switch: /Log (devenv.exe) which could also provide more info on the error.
    • Check the Windows event viewer logs for any Visual Studio/Icenium related errors logs that could provide more info.
    You can zip and upload these logs on a free file sharing site and give the link here to inspect.

    Steve:
       In tools there is no option to install just download.

    And if download and try to install (again) the installer says : "The extension is already installed to all applicable products" and is only installed in Vs 2012.

    I've images to show my problem and what I'm writing but don't know how to post. Is any way to upload an image to this forum post?

    Again, Thanks in Advance,

    Javier

    Hello Javier,

    I would suggest repairing VS 2013 and in case that does not work, I would expect the logs requested in the previous post.

       Thanks for your answer, I think my English is awfull, because you don't undertand the problem. The problem is thathe vsx didn't install in vs 2013 because there is already installed in VS2012.
    1.- If i run VS 2013 with logs, What can help yoou to undertand if the extension is not installed?
    2.- Is any way to send you images of my problem via this forum?
    3.- I already fixed instalation of VS 2013 and the problem continues.

    Thanks a lot,

    Javier

    Hi Javier,

    Sorry for this continuous problem and the misunderstanding (it's not your English). As we do not have any luck reproducing this issue on our end, would you be kind enough to post the Visual Studio exact version as seen in Help -> About. You can take a screenshot and attach the image to this post (Allowed extensions: jpg, gif, png).

    Hello Javier,

    We've managed to reproduce the problem of our VS extension not detecting VS 2013 and at least in our case it was caused by updating VS 2012 to Update 4 after VS 2013 has been installed on the machine. It seems the VS 2012 update replaces the VSIXInstaller.exe version and the extension believes that only VS 2012 is available. We assume that a complete reinstall of VS 2013 would fix the problem, but we also found a fairly easy workaround. Navigate to the VSIXInstaller of VS 2013 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\VSIXInstaller.exe) open a command prompt at that location and run the following command:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE>VSIXInstaller.exe "C:\temp\Icenium.vsix"

    This would install the Icenium extension for VS 2013.

    Hello, I also faced the exact similar issue. In my case; it was VS 2010 and VS 2012. But via command prompt and VSIXInstaller.exe command; the extension got successfully installed on VS 2012. Thanks a lot.
