Code Metrics PowerTool for Visual Studio 2015

If you want to run Code Metrics for your Visual Studio solution, you will need to download the appropriate version of Code Metrics Power Tool corresponding to your Visual Studio version.

For Visual Studio 2015, you can download the Code Metrics Power Tool from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48213

If you need to integrate the calculation of Code Metrics into your automated build process (such as Jetbrains TeamCity), then you can learn how to use Code Metrics from the command line here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/camerons/archive/2011/01/28/code-metrics-from-the-command-line.aspx

If you need to make the XML results viewable, then you will probably need a set of XSLT and CSS files to transform the XML into HTML, then you will want to take a look at this article: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/camerons/2011/02/20/code-metrics-reporting-and-xslt-debugging/

Unfortunately, the links to the XSLT and CSS are broken!

I was able to dig up a version of the MetricsResultsTransform.xslt file from another site which I am providing for your reference below:

However, I was not able to find the Default.css file, so this functionality is still missing from the XSLT transformation.

If you think Microsoft should ship a default set of XSLT and CSS files with the Code Metrics PowerTool, you can vote for this UserVoice item here: https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio-2015/suggestions/15832576-ship-default-xslt-and-css-files-with-the-code-metr
