Hi I'm new to using Everest and looking forward to setting up the framework. I am using Visual Studio 2013 and running into installation errors.

An example of the install status report error is :

Installation stopped because the directory for the ProjectType value did not exist. The project type is invalid for your installation of Visual Studio.

Is Everest only compatible for VS 2010? Or is there a workaround for later versions? A response would be really helpful.

Hi San,

The templates are only compatible with Visual Studio 2008 and 2010 as we use VSI to install the templates, however you can use Everest in all versions of Visual Studio. This is something that we're looking into correcting in the 1.3 releases of Everest.

The easiest way to use Everest in VS2013 without the templates is to manually add the references to your project. You can create a new C# project (any type, except mobile) and add references to the following DLLs:

MARC.Everest.dll (required)
MARC.Everest.Formatters.XML.ITS1.dll (If you want to render the instances to XML)
MARC.Everest.Formatters.XML.DataTypes.R1.dll (If you're rendering CDAs or NE2008 messages)
MARC.Everest.Formatters.XML.DataTypes.R2.dll (If you're rendering NE2010 messages)
MARC.Everest.Connectors.WCF.dll (If you want to send messages via WCF)
MARC.Everest.Connectors.File.dll (If you want to publish/subscribe to messages in a directory)

To get the structures add a reference to the following DLLs:

MARC.Everest.RMIM.UV.NE2008.dll (If you want to do PIX/PDQv3 or other NE2008 based transactions)
MARC.Everest.RMIM.UV.NE2010.dll (If you want to do NE2010 based transactions)
MARC.Everest.RMIM.UV.CDAr2.dll (IF you want to construct CDA documents)
MARC.Everest.RMIM.CA.R020401.dll (If you're creating pan-Canadian messages)
MARC.Everest.RMIM.CA.R020402.dll (If you're creating pan-Canadian messages)
MARC.Everest.RMIM.CA.R020403.dll (If you're creating pan-Canadian messages)

We're looking into how to fix the templates issue for VS2012/2013/2015 as well as providing assistance on modern Operating Systems (i.e. Windows 10).


PS: The Everest project has officially moved to to allow wider community contribution to the core.
