No way to manage StyleCop settings in VS 2013


There is documentation on how to manage StyleCop settings in VS 2008, VS 2010, and VS 2012. The documentation doesn't claim to cover VS 2013 and indeed it seems there is no way to manage StyleCop settings in VS 2013. I am using VS 2013 Professional.

Is this an oversight or is this intentional?
Has the feature been moved?
Can you update the documentation?

By managing StyleCop settings, are you referring to the per-project settings that you can modify by right-clicking on the project in VS? If so, that should be working with VS 2013 (though the documentation does need to be updated).

I mean that the documentation describes the method for modifying the per-project settings using menu items that are no longer present in VS 2013.

See the attached picture because I can't figure out how to include it in my comment.

Yep, those menu items are still supposed to be there, and are still there in VS2013 on my computer. Hopefully my attached screenshot works.

Can you give the full 4-part version number of StyleCop that you have installed?

I had version I looked and found that the latest is, so I removed and reinstalled the newer version. While doing so I noticed some notes at the bottom that imply that you have to remove and reinstall both resharper and stylecop after installing VS2013. I know I reinstalled resharper, but I probably didn't reinstall stylecop.

Anyway, it works now. Thanks for your attention to my problem.
