Xsd2Code in Visual Studio 2012

At the time of writing this, Xsd2Code does not install nicely in VS2012. It’s easy enough to “copy” your install from VS2010, though. Here’s a summarized version of adrianot75’s solution.

  1. Copy Xsd2Code.Addin.Addin from the VS2010 Addins directory to the VS2012 Addins
    • From: %UserProfile%\My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Addins
    • To: %UserProfile%\My Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Addins
  2. Edit the Addin file to include an extra element for version 11.0
      <Name>Microsoft Visual Studio</Name>
