Visual Studio Custom Tools - add redistributable assembly to VS SDK
I guess that VSX in general missed (or did not promote enough) this simple but powerful and helpful kind of VS extending. That would be great to see in future versions of VSSDK redistributable assembly that exposes the entire base classes (like BaseCodeGeneratorWithSite) needed for Custom Tools - for single file generation as well as for multiple.
Please consider the option to provide such assembly as part of VS SDK.
Also please allow us to include this DLL as part of custom installers we develop.
Thank you in advance!

Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.
