Latest installer / Visual Studio 2013

Dec 22, 2013 at 2:52 PM
The latest installer (VSIX) does not install on my Win 8.1 (Ultimate) and Visual Studio 2013 (Ultimate) workstation. It found other versions of VS, but not 2013.

Version: MVVM Light V4.2.30.0
I used the installer provided from CodePlex from the downloads page: https://mvvmlight.codeplex.com/releases/view/115541


Here is the install log file:

Hey Howard

You are using the wrong VSIX (for VS12).

For VS13 you must use this one:
https://mvvmlight.codeplex.com/downloads/get/763269

(it is the one labeled Setup for VS2013 in the download page)

Cheers
