    Greetings Greg,
    I'm using NuPattern. Currently I did just update to NuPattern to developing my tools in visual studio 2012.
    In version when I did assigning a template to 'NuPattern.Library.Commands.GenerateProductCodeCommand' then I did just see this error:

    NuPattern.Library.Design.TextTemplateUriEditor Error: 0 : Failed to edit file.
    System.ArgumentException: The solution element 'PatternToolkit3' must be contained in a project containing a VSIX manifest file marked with the 'IsToolkitManifest' MSBuild metadata.
    at NuPattern.VisualStudio.Solution.SolutionExtensions.GetToolkitManifest(IProject project)
    at NuPattern.VisualStudio.Solution.SolutionExtensions.GetToolkitManifest(IItemContainer element)
    at NuPattern.Library.Design.TextTemplateUriEditor.BuildUri(IItemContainer selectedItem)
    at NuPattern.Library.Design.TextTemplateUriEditor.<>c__DisplayClass4.<EditValue>b__3()
    at NuPattern.VisualStudio.TraceSourceExtensions.DoShield(ITracer traceSource, Action action, String format, Boolean showUI, String[] args)

    can you help me to debug this error?
