Copy Source As Html (CopySourceAsHtml) on VPC

Copy Source As Html CopySourceAsHtml on VPC I've been using Copy Source As Html (CopySourceAsHtml) for Visual Studio 2008 RTM for a while, but recently tried to work with it on a Virtual PC (VPC). When I tried copying a code snippet to the clipboard I ran into an exception: "Requested Clipboard operation did not succeed."

I found the code that I had to change in Mike Glaser's Blog, but to make thinks a little shorter:

1. Download this ZIP file that contains the add in.

2. Extract it to the following folders:

  • Vista:
    • C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins
  • XP:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Addins
    • C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins

Enjoy!
