Hi all,

At last I am about to launch myself into X# and looking forward to it.

It seems the team have made huge progress since I last looked ages ago.

Sadly I've been too busy (and/or working in Vulcan too slowly) recently. (I think it's an age thing! - my excuse.)

Hi Alwyn,

I don't know when you looked the last time, but the compiler is in a very good state, and it is now more than two years that I have applications built with X# in production - initially only small Windows Services and command line programs, but now also GUI applications, both written from scratch using WPF and moved over from Vulcan. And now I'm finishing the migration of the first VO application that I hope to put in production in the next weeks.

The compiler is more powerful than Vulcans compiler even was (LinQ, generics, dynamics, all these things work), and at the same time more compatible to VO than Vulcan - and it finds errors in my old VO code...

With X# programming is really funny, and whenever I have to return to VO (most of my programming currently is in VO), I wish I could continue to work in X#.

We have also built a small documentation wiki (entirely user driven), where you should find some documentation, issues and samples, and as every wiki, this is not yet complete and will never be.... If you miss something or wish to contribute, please let me know: https://docs.xsharp.it

Hi Wolfgang,

Thanks for your response, but I have a problem.

I'm sure you could explain the following:

I have installed X#. It is in "Program Files (x86)" and the Microsoft Help Viewer lists help for X# (XSharp) 1.1.1 (and the BYOR documentation) but if I try to create a new Project in VS Community 2015 there is no template for X#. Am I missing something? Register X# with VS somehow?

I have re-started the PC in case that might help but it didn't.

Any ideas?

Alwyn

Hi Alwyn,

do you have installed X# before Visual Studio?

Wolfgang

P.S. unfortunately I prefer XIDE, but in my Visual Studio installation (2015 Community too) the X# project types show up:

Hi Alwyn

Good to see you here. I'm in much the same position as you - been here just a few weeks and only C# to fall back on. I by-passed Vulcan.

All the best

Hi Alwyn and very nice seeing you here! :)

About VS, better try uninstalling X# and installing it again. Does the installer prompt you to install VS integration? (in the page where you can select compiler, VS, XIDE files etc)

Hi Chris,

Good to hear from you again.

I've been busy gardening all day but will try again in the morning. I'm knackered.

Many thanks for the advice. I'll let you know how I get on.

Hello Alwyn,

Welcome in the X# community.

For all VS versions 2015, 2017 including Community, X# is definitely present as a template. You will even see the XPorter in the Tools window. Do you see that?

I recommend to reinstall X#; it will take a few minutes and it will tell you during the installation what it is doing with VS integration.

Hello Dick,

Thanks for your support and advice.

I uninstalled X# and re-installed. I accepted all the parts offered including the XPorter.

X# appears in the Win 10 Start menu as expected.

But VS-15 Community doesn't recognise it. When trying to create a new project in VS there is no option for X# though I have options for C#, VB, F#, C++, Vulcan and others. And it is not listed under "Other Project Types".

And the About Window in VS doesn't list X#

So I'm stuck!

Hi Chris,

Yes, I accepted VS Integration.

I have since uninstalled and started again but still no X# in VS. But Program Files(X86) contains all the files that I would expect to see.

Is "RegisterProvider.exe" (12/12/2017) relevant? I have not knowingly run it.

Should I run any of the EXE files in the "Program Files(X86)/XSharp" folder?

Hi Alwyn,

Strange, have not seen that before, maybe Robert or Fabrice have an idea on what migh be happening. What is your exact VS version, as shown in the about dialog?

Hi Juraj,

Thanks for the suggestion.

No mention of X# there in any section.

Alwyn,
Is there a "Deployvs2015.cmd" or "Deployvs2017.cmd" in your \Program files (x86)\Xsharp\Uninst folder ?

I also noticed that you have downloaded the public installer and not the FOX installer.
Please goto " www.xsharp.info/itm-downloads?folder=fox%252FCompiler " and download the 1.1.2 installer.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for responding. I'm sorry to bother you with this.

There is a deployvs2015.cmd file, but not a deployvs2017.cmd file. I don't have VS 2017, so I guess that's OK.

I can't find how to download the FOX installer from your website.

When I try the link " www.xsharp.info/itm-downloads?folder=fox%252FCompiler " I get the message: "Error What are you trying to access is not a folder."

I hope I'm not being thick!

Alwyn,

- Logon to the website
Then navigate to:
- Downloads in the menu
- Then click on "Friends Of XSharp"
- Then click on "Installers"
- Then Click on "XSharp 1.1.2"

That should trigger the download of the 1.1.2 installer

If after installing 1.1.2 you still don't see X# in your VS then please send me the file deployvs2015.cmd from your PF\XSharp\Uninst folder.

Hi Robert,

I am an idiot. Thanks for the instructions. I have downloaded and installed 1.1.2.

But still no X# in VS 2015

I have sent the .CMD file separately.
