Copy Source as HTML in Visual Studio 2010

Unfortunately, they haven’t released an installer that works with Visual Studio 2010 yet

SharePoint Archiving Journal

I was working on my first SharePoint 2010 post today since I actually installed some bits and quickly discovered that I did not have Copy Source As Html working with Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.  If you’re a blogger like me, you will find that you are quite addicted to this useful tool as it makes pasting good looking code segments quite easy.  Unfortunately, they haven’t released an installer that works with Visual Studio 2010 yet, so I decided to see if I could figure out how to get it to work.  Now, I’m not expert on Visual Studio Addins, so it took me some experimenting.  I installed the product as normal, but when I opened Visual Studio, I did not find the addin loaded.  After some investigating, I decided to copy the CopySourceAsHtml.AddIn file into my user folder.  Specifically this goes in C:\Users\<UserName>\My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Addins.  Note: the My Documents folder is actually the Documents folder if you are looking at it directly on the file system.  Also to note is that the Addins folder probably will not exist so you need to create it.

After I did this, I tried opening Visual Studio again and again did not see my addin loaded.  I then decided to open the file and take a look.  I quickly saw something that stood out at me.

This is version 10 of Visual Studio so I decided to increment the new two version elements as shown below.

After I saved the changes, I restarted Visual Studio and sure enough the addin loaded and worked correctly.  In fact I pasted the above snippets using the tool in Visual Studio 2010.  If you have never used Copy Source as Html before, go check it out.  It’s a handy tool for pasting code snippets.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
