Hi, first of all thanks for this great tool, second, I got a question:
Would it be possible to create some kind of portable package of this tool? I'd like to add this tool as a folder to our Git repository so any new developer would just Clone it and it will compile without need of installing this tool using the Installer.

Edit, also every time I open the generated file, it's telling me that line ends are inconsistent. This should be probably fixed as well.

The stand alone download is a portable version of it. I'm working on a new version these days and it should be out in a few days, I optimized generating code for very large databases (in the current build it either takes a hell of a long time or it crashes)

Anyway, check out the stand alone version of Build

You linked SQL code generator build, but I was talking about ResW File Code Generator, or am I missing something? :)

My bad! Very very sorry! I was a bit distracted...

I never thought of making a stand alone version of it, you need to add some keys to the registry, register COM, and manipulate the GAC, and restart visual studio in order for a custom tool to work in Visual Studio. It's a bit hard to make it portable but I can look into it..

Hi again,

I published a VSIX Package of this and uploaded it to the Visual Studio gallery. It should be available in the Extensions dialog.
