XML comment templates in VS 2015 (VBXMLDoc.xml)


  • Hi,

    In VS 2013 I followed information on this website ( to make a custom XML template for what fields show when I enter ''' in VB.NET. I have now upgraded to VS 2015 and I have realized how much I used those templates, now that they are missing. I tried by copying the 2013 version of my VBXMLDoc.xml file and put it in the same location for version 2015. That did not work however. I have searched the net and this forum, and I found one other question here, search for "Are xml comments in VB still customizable?" (I am not allowed to use links), however, it appears people didn't understand the question, and while it has a proposed answer, the 'answer' is referring to the location of the XML comment output file, not the file the question was about.

    In VS 2013 the location of the VBXMLDoc.xml file is in C:\Users\<user><user abp="461">\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0</user> (Win 7)

    Hopefully there can be a concise answer here for others to find :-)
