How to: Install a Visualizer

After you have created a visualizer, you must install the visualizer so that it will be available in Visual Studio. Installing a visualizer is a simple process.

Note Note

In Store apps, only the standard text, HTML, XML, and JSON visualizers are supported. Custom (user-created) visualizers are not supported.

To install a visualizer

  1. Locate the DLL that contains the visualizer you have built.

  2. Copy the DLL to either of the following locations:

    • VisualStudioInstallPath\Common7\Packages\Debugger\Visualizers

    • My Documents\VisualStudioVersion\Visualizers

  3. If you want to use a managed visualizer for remote debugging, copy the DLL to the same path on the remote computer.

  4. Restart the debugging session.
