(Here is my soapbox time!)
This version is a clean room design using appropriate guidelines for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and beyond. The Codeplex version, as many of you know, does not work with the current version of Visual Studio, as Microsoft changed extension requirements. The posted version is also a bit annoying to use and does not contain all the features that I wanted. I also wanted a commercially supported product.
I purposely kept the dialog layout similar, so that developers of this tool have an easier time to adapt, however as versions of VS Incrementer grow and features get added, the interface will adapt and grow.
This product is not freeware, but commercial. As such, customers get to talk to someone about issues, new features, and the like.
Although this tool is a commercial product, I truly would like the engineering community to be part of the development by suggesting features, providing ideas, comments, and helping to spread the word to other products. Remember, software development takes a lot of time and money. Please help support this endeavor by purchasing a license.
Lastly, the initial release does not have 100% of the features of BuildVersionIncrement (a.k.a. autobuildincrement) tool for the initial release, but it does have other features. The missing features will come. Please suggest features! After all, you will hopefully be using the extension.
Other languages: Let me know if you have a need for F#, C++, or languages supported by Visual Studio. Do you need other platforms?
Here is How to Use the Extension
After you install the extension, simply double click on the VSIX file, launch Visual Studio and open up (if desired) a solution / project file.
Clicking on the Butterflyvista VS Incrementer menu option will show this dialog, which will allow you to configure the auto increment rules. You will see a mini-solution explorer on the left pane and properties on the right.
