Open XML Package Editor for Visual Studio 2015


Open XML Package Editor is one of the must tool for Office Developers and also my favorite tool when it comes to debugging Word/Excel related file composition or XML parts. 

Current version which is available for download in Visual Studio gallery does't provide support for 2015. It supports only VS 2010/2012/2013.

After checking Q&A section, noticed Chris Rae suggested to get the code and compile for targeting VS2015. I just downloaded, complied and also validated the behavior - working fine. Thanks Chris for sharing your work !. 

Uploaded the compiled version supporting 2015 here - http://1drv.ms/1HHXVBC {"OpenXMLEditor.vsix"}

Try it out and let me know if that helps you.

    I just tried downloading this today, June 14, 2016, and the link you provided isn’t valid any longer.

    can you provide me with a current one?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    1. Paul, not clear which link you are talking about. Checked all the links-All good.

    1. Got it, let me check..

      1. Paul, Sorry, not sure what is going wrong with your installation but it works as expected. Just tried few mins back in my new box.
        Pasting the log for you to check, because I am not expert in this.

        If this is gating you then I would suggest to download the raw dump from github directly to try build at your box.
        But I see this is most likely a machine specific issue. You can try it in a diff box to confirm further.

    Hi

    Is there any extension for Visual Studio 2017?

    Regards

    1. Borislav Ivanov says:

      I managed to port the code and build the extension for Visual Studio 2017.

      The pull request is here:
      https://github.com/OfficeDev/Open-XML-Package-Editor-Power-Tool-for-Visual-Studio/pull/12

      And the extension build for VS 2017 here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Amp5JXlYDuqQg9dPJRBo0G3OAw7Jdg

      Maheshk, we all count on you to push the guys inside the company to update the extension on the Visual Studio marketplace 🙂

      1. Awesome. Thanks Borislav. I will try to contact the folks who owns the page and see if they can update at the gallery link directly.
