Language File Population Helper VS Macro v1.1

Some of you may have already read my previous blog post and played about with the Macro I have created for making it slightly easier to mange language files in visual studio. 

I have now released version 1.1 of the Macro which can be downloaded here.  The new version combines 3 slightly annoying input boxes into one tidier form, see the screen dump below:


For those of you who have already setup the previous version of the macro, just overwrite the source and add a reference to the assemblies mentioned in the installation instructions if they don’t already exist.


For installation instructions please refer to my previous blog post.

Please note: You will need to make sure your macros project has references to the following assemblies:

  • System.Core
  • System.Drawing
  • System.Xml
  • System.Windows.Forms


I hope people find this Macro useful, maybe people could further enhance it and share the enhancements with the community.

I am always eager to receive feedback good and bad. 

Please feel free to email or twitter me with any feedback @croweman or comment on the blog post.
