I installed the EPiServer extension for visual studio 2012 express for web.
I select EPiServer Web Site and press install, it launches the EPiServer deployment center and starts installing a site. So far so good.
However when it returns to Visual Studio express i get this error
Does anybody know what causes this and how to fix it? It seems like the site is "installed" but it does not show up in my existing solutions so i am not able to use the templates from the extension.
For some reason my image did not get uploaded
The error is:
[Visual studio express 2012 for web]
Object reference not set to an instance of an object
I've never used Visual Studio Express for developing EPiServer and I don't know if it's a bug or anything so this is just a shot in the dark.
Did you run VS as administrator?
I just attempted to run as administrator and the problem unfortunatly still persists. Thanks for the tip though.
Is there a reason you are not using the latest version? You can find a download link for Express here: http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/4ad95160-e72f-4355-b53e-0994d2958d3e
Yes, the extension does not register with 2013, only 2012.
If i tried to install it with only 2013 version i only got the message "no applicable version of visual studio found".
Which edition of Visual Studio 2013 do you have? (Under Help->About..)
Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for WebVersion 12.0.30501.00 Update 2Microsoft .NET FrameworkVersion 4.5.50938Installed Version: WD Express
