Announcing Achievements For Visual Studio 2012 RC

Sign in to queue


We are excited to announce a version of Visual Studio Achievements that works on Visual Studio 2012 RC.  Running this version of the extension will enable you to unlock a new achievement called Brave New World, which is unlocked when you create or open a project when running Visual Studio 2012 RC on Windows 8 RP.  Expect lots more Windows 8 oriented achievements coming soon!

With this version of the extension installed, you can also earn any of the 47 other achievements all from Visual Studio 2012 RC on either Windows 8 or an earlier version of the OS.

Note that the Visual Studio Achievements Extension for Visual Studio 2012 RC is a different binary.  This is because the extension has a dependency on the FxCopSdk.dll that ships with Visual Studio and the FxCopSdk.dll is not binary compatible between versions of Visual Studio.

    "Show Me The Cache" Achievement still BROKEN!!!  I've been waiting to get this thing forever please fix ASAP!!! It's the only one I need.  I have all the rest.  I did this many times with the Azure 1.6 and it never worked and I was told it was a bug and would be fixed in the next achievement release.  Now I'm using Azure 1.7 and the latest achievement release and I tried the "shared" cache which is the old way of doing it and I also tried the new cache preview and neither unlocked this achievement.  What's the point of Achievements if some are really un achievable.


    Here is the link where karstenj says it's a bug with the cache url.  PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!

    What to do when this happens every time when building a solution (having a 30+ enum) in vs2012 RTM on win7?

    Can I reset my achievement data?
