GhostDoc Visual Studio 2019 RTM
Question asked by Steve Bush - April 3 at 8:24 AM
Answered
I justed upgraded to Visual Studio 2019 and would like to upgrade my GhostDoc install as well.  I know there is a compatible beta of GhostDoc for Visual 2019 available.  A couple of questions:
1) Is the beta stable for production use?
2) What is the release date for the non-beta version of GhostDoc Enterprise for Visual Studio 2019?

Thx.

A couple of migration hiccups.  
1) The license key for GhostDoc Enterprise for Visual 2019 is different from 2017.  I had to request new license keys be sent to me.
2) My GhostDoc settings were not migrated from 2017 to 2019.  I had to export my customized settings from 2017 to 2019.  The user directory is vs version specific.
    a) Open Visual Studio 2017
    b) Tools=>GhostDoc Enterprise=>options
    c) Click on Export, save to local drive
    d) Open Visual Studio 2019
    e) Tools=>GhostDoc Enterprise=>options
    f) Click on Import, select file you exported from 2017

Note, global properties don't seem to be saving properly for me.

Any chance you use have v2018 in VS2017?

Yes, that is how it works right now. Or you could just run the Configuration Wizard and import the *.gdc from the <Documents>\SubMain\GhostDoc Enterprise for VS2017 folder.

We do have on our list to improve the configuration import and are looking for input on how you’d prefer handling the scenarios with multiple version of GhostDoc installed in several versions of Visual Studio - some people have to work in several new and old VS at depending on the project...

Note, global properties don't seem to be saving properly for me.

Can you please provide an example? If you prefer, you can email the details to us at support at submain dot com

Thanks!
