    I can't find the Visual Studio Achievements For VS 2013 extension anywhere?

    Just remembered this existed - when can we expect the achievements to be released for VS 2013?

    Hey! I just realized this too! It's cause I came across this article from Phil Haack http://ow.ly/ykjYl, and then I remembered this VS extension! Bring it for 2013!

    Just unzip vsachievments2012.vsix, open file extension.vsixmanifest and change supportedProducts tag like this:

    <SupportedProducts>
    <VisualStudio Version="11.0"> to <VisualStudio Version="12.0"> 
    <Edition>Ultimate</Edition>
    <Edition>Premium</Edition>
    <Edition>Pro</Edition>
    <Edition>IntegratedShell</Edition>
    </VisualStudio>

    zip files again giving the zip extension .vsix and install :)

    I verified only on first achievment (install and login), but im curious if it works also for code inspection achievments etc. I'll be glad for feedback.

    vsix cheating does not work for me:

    Hi Artem,

    Please check versions in manifest file. It looks like:

    <Edition>Ultimate</Edition>
    <Edition>Premium</Edition>
    <Edition>Pro</Edition>
    <Edition>IntegratedShell</Edition>

    So you have to add your Community edition to it. :)

    Happy Coding..!!!:D

    No luck.

     Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.MissingPackagePartException: This VSIX package is invalid because it does not contain the file extension.vsixmanifest at the root. The VSIX file may be corrupted

    This is what I tried:

    <VisualStudio Version="12.0">
    <Edition>Ultimate</Edition>
    <Edition>Premium</Edition>
    <Edition>Pro</Edition>
    <Edition>IntegratedShell</Edition>
    <Edition>Community</Edition>
    </VisualStudio>

    @amalaravind:

    You couldn't have luck because you zipped the whole folder, inklusive the folder. So the folder is on the root of your zip file, instead of everything else :)

    Unpack it again and then move everything INSIDE the folder into the zip file and then rename it to vsix and THIS part should be OK. Maybe you also can use the extension?!
