Power Commands for Visual Studio 2010


[Update: 27 April 2010 — RTM now available http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/e5f41ad9-4edc-4912-bca3-91147db95b99 ]

Moving to VS2010 felt like a step backwards in some respects as it doesn’t implement many of the great productivity enhancements that the Power Commands for Visual Studio 2008 offered.

The good news is that the PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2010 are are now available here. [UPDATE 17 Feb 2010: Please note that this tool has been withdrawn for now. I’ve got no further details other than it’s in preparation for RTM, so I guess check back around March time.]

One thing to note is that after installing the Visual Studio extension, you will probably need to enable it for administrators.

To do this,

  • Go to Tools > Options > Environment – Extension Manager and check ‘Load per user extensions when running as administrator.’
  • Restart Visual Studio

Be sure to check out the Gallery for other useful extensions: logo
