It is quite common that you will find some issues during updating development environment to a newer version – in this case to Visual Studio 2015. In projects that use StyleCop for code analysis you can get SA0120 CSharp.CsParser error. It seems that it is internal StyleCop error. You are not able to find information about SA0102 error in StyleCop warning messages’ documentation. It is good that this error will not occur after opening project in Visual Studio 2015.

And finally I have done my own – [...]
Sometimes really small features that are implemented in add-ins can make developer feel happy. This small features can speed up software development process. Last time I had to prepare an application installer – I have chosen WiX. In this solution you need to add to each element in installer GUID. Hopefully I am using R# with Visual Studio 2012. And the R# generates GUIDs out of the box. You only need to enter [mark]nguid[/mark], press [mark]tab[/mark] button and choose proper format.
I think that everybody knows the Telerik company – the provider of controls packs for different platforms.

But their time will come in the future. […]
