Does anyone know how to create the feature "Open In Visual Studio"?


  • I am building a website called Lava Pub ( a better open source community where project creators get paid directly by sponsors who bid to sponsor a project).

    Visual Studio Online has a feature "Open In Visual Studio", and I would like to add that feature as it is one of the only two things I like about Visual Studio Online (the other is the price).

  • Thanks for the link, but I am not sure if that will work since the application being opened (Visual Studio) is not my own app.
