Uninstalling stylecop caused error in visual studio

Aug 25, 2011 at 9:34 AM


I have stylecop v4.3 and i want to upgrade to v4.4.

After uninstalling v4.3 , I open visual studio and there is a reappearing error message "Failed to find ..." the stylecop assembly.

The unistall doesn't remove all the setting in VS.

What can i do?

I have the same problem too with VS2008 - tried to upgrade to v4.4, v4.5 and v4.6, but VS keeps opening the dialog saying "Failed to find the StyleCop Assembly".

Any news on this?

Hi dujche,

Couldn't it be that you're using some StlyeCop 3rd party rules (plug-ins) which are still require old StyleCop verison?

Hi Oleg, 

The problem was the installed StyleCopForResharper5.0 plugin which required StyleCop

Thanks for your help,
