My small add-in for Visual Studio to help you debug your Silverlight applications had problems running on Visual Studio 2012 RC. It installed correctly but did not show up in the respective menu, and wasn't able to do its work either. Time to introduce some changes I wanted to do for a long time anyway!
The Debug Helper now is a Visual Studio Extension rather than an add-in, and can be installed directly from the Extension Manager from within Visual Studio, or downloaded from the Visual Studio Gallery here:
Of course, the source code is still available through CodePlex, on the project's hompage:
There you can also find more documentation and information on the motivation to create the extension. Things that have changed in the new version besides the packaging:
- Made detecting Silverlight projects more robust.
- Made selecting the Silverlight debug engine more robust.
The extension has been tested on both Visual Studio 2010 and 2012. If you run into any issues, please feel free to contact me, preferably on CodePlex.

You may have noticed that so far, the amount of blog posts in June was… zero :). The reason for this mostly is that I'm currently in the process of moving to a new place, and planning everything for that, while still doing my normal day job and work. I still managed to write some articles for our team blog though, so if you're capable of understanding German you may be interested in those too:
June 8th: Meet Windows Azure
I'm talking about the recent announcements and new features for Windows Azure in this post.
June 19th: Microsoft announces Surface™
A detailed description of the just announced Windows 8 tablets and their features.
June 20th: Microsoft gives a sneak peek on Windows Phone 8
I'm describing the news around the next generation of Windows Phone announced at the WP Summit a few days ago in this article.
Apart from that, there will only be a few more minor posts here until I've completely finished moving, which will be in mid-July. Stay tuned!
