Many To Many Control (Silverlight Version) For VS 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello !

    I'm trying to use Many To Many Control from LightSwitch Team

    with VS 2013 Update 3. I think that it doesn't work with VS 2013.

    I can't install the control. The following log message is showed:

  • Hi,

    I think the problem is that this plugin is for visual studio 2011, and you are using  visual studio 2013. The version requirements for the plugin are rather strict.

    Based on Beth Massi said,Visual studion team has a long list of extensions to go through, test, and determine if they can rerelease them for VS2013.

    Please check a thread which could help you :

    You could also report this to microsoft.

  • No it is for Visual Studio 2012 a VSIX is available for VS 2012 that I currently use I could not find a VSIX file for 2013 Yet as Qiminding said I suggest using VS 2012 LightSwitch Version 2 for a project that really needs this extension. I have the same problem though my Projects Use it and I need to Upgrade those projects to VS 2013 to take advantage of Intrinsic Database Management and the New Types like person for my Digitally signing process but I think for now I can't do that.

  • Hi there!

    Is there something new on this subject?

    Will be Many to Many control from LightSwitch Team available for VS 2013 and 2015?

    I trusted in a resource made available by the LS team and I can not update my application for the latest version of VS.

    Any suggestion?

    Best regards,


    Ciro

  • I haven't seen anything my best advise it to stick with VS 2012 for the project that requires this extension.
