After coming back from BULD 2014
yesterday, I wanted to get my desktop all updated with the Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 RC
update, the Roslyn .NET Compiler CTP
and the .NET Native Compiler
The update to Visual Studio 2013 installed without a hitch as did the .NET Native Compiler, however the Roslyn vsix file errored out with the following error:
Guessing the error was related to my recent installing of Visual Studio 2010 to do ia64 development (more on that this week), I searched around and could only find one person reinstalling Visual Studio 2013 - definitely not something I was willing to do.
Checking in Windows Explorer with the
Open With...Choose default program...
option I noticed the Visual Studio 2010 Icon was associated with the
Microsoft Visual Studio Version Selector
, and then scrolled down to
Look for another app on this PC
I then navigated to my
Visual Studio 2013
install (c:\Program FIles (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE folder and selected
After selecting the Visual Studio 2013 VSIXInstaller application, Roslyn installed and I should note the icon in Windows Explorer (as expected) updated to the 2013 version:
For those having issues with a 2012 VSIX, simply use c:\Program FIles (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE instead.
Hopefully that alleviated someone having to reinstall Visual Studio as it did for me.
