Still working for Visual Studio 2015?

Dec 30, 2015 at 3:01 PM
Hi, I used the wizard successfully on a previous occasion with Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition.

I am using VS2015 Community edition right now. The wizard package is installed, by I cannot find any way to use it in my project. I think it should be accessible form Project, add new item ... but ithe wizard is not shown there. Do I miss something or is there a compatibility issue?

Did you install using the VSIX package or some other way?

I used the Nuget installer, I believe this uses VSIX packages.

The NuGet installer just delivers the assemblies to the project. To get the Project Items, I would recommend going into VS, clicking menus "Tools | Extensions and Updates", selecting "Online | Visual Studio Gallery", and then searching for "wizard". The first item on the list is usually "Windows Forms Wizard Templates". This is the VSIX package for this library. Doing it this way will make sure you stay updated automatically. This will install 3 item templates for creating different types of wizard forms.

I used NuGet in VS2010 and it seems to have installed the assemblies to my test-project. Is there a way to install the controls to my Toolbox for VS2010 (.Net4)? I'd really like to try this out, but manually executing the vsix says "The extension manifest is invalid."

Thanks.

You can use the library itself in all version of VS since 2005 and it supports .Net 2, 3.5 and 4. The VSIX with the item templates only supports VS 2012 and later.

There are multiple sites that can tell you how to add controls to your toolbox from NuGet installed assemblies. You can do this and the follow the steps in the documentation to create a wizard form.

If you want the ready made forms that are in the VSIX, you can look in the source code area and you will find a TestAeroWizard project. In it are the 3 forms used to test those items delivered with the VSIX. Simply install the NuGet package and copy one of those files into your project and you should be ready to go.
