I just installed Visual Studio 2017 and the latest Wisej development release.
After Installing everything the toolbox does not contain any Wisej controls when a form is in focus in the designer. I have read other posts about this issue and have tried the “repair” option on the Visual Studio installation. I also checked in the extensions and Wisej.core and Wisej.web are both checked. Any suggestions on how to get this to work ? I am on a 30 day trial and would like to try it out.
With VS 2017 Microsoft is trying to force developers to use VSIX to install extensions. But VSIX is very limited when it comes to install assemblies in the GAC (for the designer) and to perform very basic installing operations, like adding shortcuts, startup apps (auto updater) and so on.
Apparently there is a way to make it work with the release (we tried with the RC only) and will will try again.
At the moment the only way is to do it manually:
Right click the toolbox
Add Tab “Wisej Controls”
Right click the new tab, Select Items…
Browse to Wisej.Core.dll and Wisej.Web.dll and add both.
It will select the tools automatically.
