Update StyleCop dlls to


When I open my Visual Studio 2015 with the latest version of StyleCop Check-in Policy and Visual StyleCop extensions installed and if I go to a project with the check-in policy enabled, it throws an exception either on trying to run StyleCop for some project using a contextual menu or when reviewing Pending Changes - depending on which of the two scenarios I use first. The exception says something about missing constructor, which, based on this discussion, is probably because the two extensions use different versions of StyleCop.dll. The Check-in Policy extension appears to use the older one.

Therefore, please update StyleCop dlls to version

Could you give more information about the TFS version and update you use?
We use this checkin policy every day with multiple teams and we don't have any problems. I need more information to investigate. Have you the exact error message?

Sorry for a delayed answer... :-(

We use TFS 2013 version 12.0.31101.0

My machine configuration:
  • Windows 8
  • Visual Studio 2015 (up to date)
  • Visual StyleCop visual studio extension version
  • StyleCop Check-in Policy 2015 extension version 2.1.0

I reproduced the problem. I have it to on my machine. The problem is that Visual StyleCop changes a lot. So I contacted the developer for this today. But I will update the dll to check if this fixes the isssue. I think that this will be done this week.

The original StyleCop project is back up under new management. There is an alpha release that includes 2 years worth of stuff including VS2015 compatibility. The next release is expected to include C#6 rule support.

I saw the notification. When the next release is stable, I will take a look which dll is better to use for this project.
