GhostDoc 1.9.2 (for Visual Studio 2005) Released


Version 1.9.2 is a bugfix release of GhostDoc for Visual Studio 2005 (download on the GhostDoc homepage).

VB.Net support will still remain experimental in this release, so it is turned off by default and you have to turn it on in the configuration dialog. It will become official in the next feature release, which I’ll be working on over the Christmas holidays.

Important: When updating from 1.9.0 please follow the instructions in the ReadMe.htm file in the ZIP archive. Users of 1.9.1 please uninstall before installing – an upgrade installation will not work correctly*.


  • Fixed: Installation issues with the US version of Visual Studio 2005 running on a non-US operating system version (e.g. German WinXP).
  • Fixed: "Custom text" feature (see "Options" tab on the configuration dialog) was broken since 1.9.0.
  • Fixed: The rule for event-related "On..." methods generated text with the name of the event splitted into individual words. Now the original name of the event is preserved; in order to achieve that, new macros have been added (see below).
  • Added: New "Verbatim" property of the "Words" macro. Example: for the method name "SayHelloWorld"
    • $(MethodName.Words.ExceptFirst) returns "hello world"
    • $(MethodName.Words.Verbatim.ExceptFirst) returns "HelloWorld".

*) I’m using an installer class during setup, which in an upgrade installation is affected by a bug in MSI (known since 2002, btw). An upgrade installation is only possible without problems if the code of the installer class does not change – I hope that the changes in 1.9.2 to the installation are good enough for a couple of versions ;-)


  • Still not working... I've installed it and it now (at least) shows up in the Add-In manager, but the setup wizard didn't appear when I installed it, and I don't see anything with "ghost" in the name in the keyboard bindings area... Any ideas?

  • Hi Mike,

    the good news is that if you can see it in the add-in manager, then we can get it running ;-)

    the not-so-good news is that what you describe is a sign of an uncomplete uninstallation of the previous 1.9.x GhostDoc version.

    Could please you visit the GhostDoc forum (link on the GhostDoc website) and post an entry in the support sub-forum (with details like your previous GhostDoc version etc.). In the meantime I'll prepare a description of what to do so it will be helpful for other users, too.
