Visual Studio 2010-specific Information
If you are running Visual Studio 2010 with administrative privileges, you must explicitly allow extensions to run:
Tools | Options | Environment | Extension Manager | "Load per user extensions when running as administrator"
Some Visual Assist X features in operate a little differently in Visual Studio 2010:
- VA underlines source code in C/C++ only if IDE Squiggles are disabled.
- C++ include directories are now project defined. VA will use the platform include directories defined in your project unless you specifically change the VA Platform option to Custom.
- If you have automatic symbol reference highlighting enabled in both VA and in C#, VA will not highlight in C# files. Disable the IDE option (Tools | Options | Text Editor | C#) if you prefer VA highlight behavior.
- The VA Context Menu is not available via right-click in the selection margin or shift+right-click in the text editor. You can bind the VAssistX.OpenContextMenu command to a keystroke to display the menu.
- If coloring of tooltips is enabled, the default colors rather than your colors are used (confirmed bug in Visual Studio).
- Although background color items can be set in the IDE Options dlg, the colors will not be used in non-editor windows (applies to Class, Method, Variable, Macro / Enum items).
