An Updated Infragistics Version Utility Installer for Visual Studio 2013

As most of you know, Visual Studio 2013 is about to be released early to MSDN subscribers.  If you are one of the lucky individuals that get access to these early bits, and start installing the latest version of Infragistics Ultimate 13.1, you will notice that the current installer does not recognize VS2013 for the Infragistics Visual Studio Extension and the Version Utility.


Honestly, you will only care about this if you are wanting to upgrade to VS2013, and then start upgrading your projects that may be using an earlier version of Infragistics Ultimate to the current 13.1 release.  If you aren’t upgrading your existing projects to 13.1 or your projects are already using 13.1, then this doesn’t affects you at all.  Simply continue the installation as normal, and all your products will continue to install properly.

If you are in the rare situation were you want to start upgrading your existing projects from an older version to Infragistics Ultimate 13.1 immediately following an upgrade to VS2013 then you need to use this updated Version Utility for Visual Studio 2013.  Simply download and run this updated Version Utility .VSIX and it will correctly install into VS2013.


You will also get the very helpful project context menu option to run the Version Utility from within VS2013 to quickly upgrade your existing projects to the newest version of Infragistics Ultimate 13.1.


It’s important to mention, that although the Infragistics Visual Studio Extension and the Version Utility cannot be installed with the current 13.1 version of the Platform Installer, all of our controls will install and work perfectly.  Only the VS Extension and Version utility are currently affected.  I would also like to point out that we will have an updated Platform Installer that is fully compatible with VS2013 by the time it is officially launched in November.

Or better yet, you can just wait until we ship Infragistics Ultimate 13.2 in November.

I've installed the Visual Studio Extension and the Version Utility for VS 2013, the decompressed file from the zip provided is the  extension for VS 2012, it appear in extension manager as installed, but it is not appearing in the IDE of VS 2013, is there other steps to follow to make it appear. Thank for your help.

The zipped file is just named for 2012, but it works for 2013 as I have shown in my screenshots.  Are you not getting the right-click menu options?

I've installed Version Utility, but my visual studio 2013 still cannot add Windows Phone component, when the 2013.2 released?

We are planning on releasing 13.2 within the next two weeks.

I have installed the VS2013 version utility and upgraded my sample project. When I add an IG component to a page and run I get a javascript error (from research it appears to be jquery related) which is "Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: unsupported pseudo: wddEstimate." The "wddEstimate" is my IG WebDropDownList control ID. As best I can tell there seems to be an incompatibility related to jquery and the use of a pseudo-class, at least that's what jquery is reporting. Is 13.1 compatible with VS2013? I do not have this issue with 12.1 and VS2012. Any suggestions are welcome!

The link works for me.  Anyways, we have released volume 13.2 which is compatible with VS2013.

Hello Brian,

Do you know if the  Infragistcs.Lightswitch.Extension works with VS2013?

How do I Install it? VU2013.2 does not seems to work.

No, our Silverlight based Lightswitch product is no longer being developed.  Microsoft has provided guidance not to use Silverlight, but rather to use HTML.

Oh man.  I wish I had downloaded this back then.  Now I can't find it anywhere.
