Release Notes

BEFORE USE YOU need to install the MSBuild Community Tasks available from https://github.com/loresoft/msbuildtasks/downloads

For best results you should configure your development environment as described in this blog post

Then read this latest blog post about customizing and using these custom templates.

Installation is simple To use this template place the ZIP (not extracted) file in your

My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#\Web

OR for VB

My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic\Web

folder. If you don't have the Web folder you can create it.

Start up Visual Studio 2010 (or 2008) and create a new project, be sure to place the project directory into your DNN/desktopmodules folder and uncheck the create directory for solution option.

For more details read the blog post.

For a video on how to use this template check out this blog post http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Resources/Blogs/tabid/825/EntryId/2880/New-DotNetNuke-Module-Development-Templates-w-video.aspx

To use these templates you must download and execute the MSI file from http://msbuildtasks.tigris.org. You must do this BEFORE you can create a project with the templates. After you create the project, build it in RELEASE mode and you will find the two packages in the PACKAGES folder of your project directory.


Fixed a couple of VB issues that didn't have the same code as the C# template
Added comments to the .CS/.VB files at the top to explain the files/classes a bit
Added documentation link to the Task Manager series for module development

Reviews for this release

For VS2010/IIS 7.0 users, you MUST specify the Host Name as dnndev in the Binding for the website. If you do not, you will get the error message when creating a new project based on the template. I also have it in the HOSTS file, but was getting an error about not being able to locate http://dnndev/DesktopModules/MyProject when creating a new project using the VB.NET template.
