Contributing - C# Express?

Apr 23, 2012 at 6:45 PM

I went through the process of downloading TortoiseHg, watched the tutorial video on Tekpub, created and pulled my own fork, only to realize I apparently can't open the project in VS C# Express. I suppose I need the full VS Pro to work on this project?

The required version of Visual Studio is the first dependency listed here ( ).

It's a shame that it requires VS Ultimate. Either people who want to contribute have to shell out big bucks for that top tier version of VS or try to get changes done in a limited time frame before their trial of VSU expires.

Oh no, total bummer.  I was looking over at the IronPython CodePlex page and they have an alternative (free) for people w/o VS Pro. I was hoping the same toolset would work for PTVS.
