[IronPython] Cannot compile IronPythonTools

You can go into project properties for IronPythonTools and on the debug settings choose launch external program.  Then just add the same command line you used to launch under the exp hive and F5 will work.

You’ll need to install the VS SDK (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=47305cf4-2bea-43c0-91cd-1b853602dcc5&displaylang=en) in addition to Visual Studio.

The reason for that is because we use the SDK’s project types to get things like a good debugging experience in the experimental hive (you can set IronPythonTools as your setup project and have it launch VS with F5 under the experimental hive.  When building the extension automatically gets deployed to the experimental hive).

One more question, how do I debug the IronPython tools? I have created the experimental hive using the command:

CreateExpInstance.exe /Reset /VSInstance=10.0 /RootSuffix=Exp

and then started the experimental instance of Visual Studio using:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /RootSuffix Exp

This starts an Experimental Instance of Visual Studio which I can see in the title bar. But when I set IronPythonTools as the startup project and press F5 I get a message saying that "A project with an Output Type of Class Library" cannot be started directly.
