  • Hello,

    Supported Sitefinity Visual Studio versions are Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013 as listed in the following article of our documentation.

    Please consider using different version of Visual Studio to resolve the encountered problem.

  • Yes, I was aware of the fact that the problem is that VS2015 is not listed in the supported products of the installation package.

    However, given that - "Sitefinity Thunder is a fast paced product that is updated every two weeks." - should I assume that support for this will be available shortly ??

  • I'm curious about the status of this as well, seeing as VS2015 is being released this upcoming Monday
  • Hello,

    Visual Studio 2015 has not been tested and supported yet. Our Sitefinity 8.1 major version was released last week  when there wasn't an official version of Visual Studio 2015.

  • Check.  Any expectations you can set around VS2015 support now that it is officially released and not Beta/RC?
  • Hi,

    I am not able to provide a exact Sitefinity release version which will provide support for Visual Studio 2015. I will pass this communication to our Project Management Team and hopefully they will schedule time for testing for one of our upcoming releases.

  • This is indeed a bit disappointing, it sounds actually like there is no roadmap for a fast Thunder integration into the current VS version.

    I ​will reinstall an old VS version just for the times when I am working with Thunder, but I am still a bit ​frustrated by the lack of VS 2015 support after such a long RC time this product had.

  • I think the original issues was that Thunder was incompatible with VS Community Edition, regardless of the year.

    Can you pls confirm that VS CE is supported? This question is not addressed in the requirements link referenced above.

  • Hi,

    I can confirm that Thunder is compatible with Visual Studio 2013 community edition which is the only one out of the supported versions to have a community version.

    Thunder is not supported on Express versions of Visual Studio which do not allow for addons.

  • Express might be unsupported but you can hack the extensions manifest file by renaming the *.vsix file to *.zip, adding the support in the manifest file and resaving it as vsix.  It might error on you when you first load but most of the features will work.   You could also wait for Telerik to create an official build for 2015 community.. etc.  At this point since everything else is supporting 2015 already, Telerik probably has abandoned Thunder.  That's my guess.
  • It's been almost two months since VS2015 EE was released and Thunder is still not available.  Exactly how far behind are we going to fall?  You've got to have some idea of what's involved by now and be able to set some sort of reasonable expectations for the developer community.

     

    Thanks,

    Richard

  • This now appears in the extensions search for online in VS2015 community but when it downloads it says it's not available for this product?
  • Hello,

    I would like to inform you that Visual Studio 2015 is now supported by Sitefinity 8.2 version and Thunder 1.5.0.1 version. Further information can be found in the KB article we created.

    In case you are experiencing some Thunder installation problems please refer to the other KB article we created.
