Installation of KeyCheck.NET component for Visual Studio 2013

If you are evaluating or currently using the KeyCheck.NET Component from ElecKey:, you will notice that the installation instructions for the KeyCheck.NET component still indicate that you have to run the Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio 2008 batch file to install the integration for Visual Studio!

Well, if you are like me, you have probably stopped using either of these IDEs years ago and have moved on to the latest and greatest release of Visual Studio 2013!

Fortunately, the batch files can be easily modified to support Visual Studio 2013 by simply changing the line to the following in the Inst_VS2008.bat file:

Tbinst -install KeyCheck Ekc.Comp.dll VisualStudio.DTE.12.0

However, after running the batch file, the installation will only add the KeyCheck section to your Toolbox.

It is still up to you to drag and drop the Ekc.Comp.dll into that section of the Toolbox to be able to use it in your applications.

That is all there is to it!!
