Upgrading Project from CKS:Dev VS2010->VS2012

Apr 17, 2013 at 10:26 AM
I have an existing project which has built using CKS:Dev VS2010 version but running in VS2010. I installed the VS2012 version and uninstalled the VS2010 version but the project cannot load the SPIs.

For the timbeing I have reinstalled VS2010 version is there a plan or way to migrate these SPIs over to the new VS2012 version?

The support for existing SPIs will be coming in the next release.

This should now be working in the v1.1 version. Please raise any issues in the issue tracker tab in this site.

Using v1.1 and I cannot see any SPIs (VS2012 Ultimate, SP2010 server) nor the SharePoint Tab in Add Reference manager dialogue, nor Create Page Layout from a content type in Server Explorer. Can you please reply and confirm exactly what we should or should not be seeing and how to rectify things if they are not present. Thanks.

The SPIs are not yet available, there were significant alterations in the VS stuff which has made them harder to directly port. They're currently in progress and some will appear in the next release.

The add reference tab is no longer needed as the VS dialog includes a brilliant search which will pull in all the SP dll's very quickly.

Finally the v1.1 should have the Create Page Layout menu item if the content type is a page type.
