Visual Studio 2013 support

Visual Studio 2013

I’m pleased to let you know that all Mindscape products have full support for Visual Studio 2013!

If you have have an active subscription you can download the latest nightly builds to get this new support. If your subscription has ended, you can renew it to obtain the latest builds.

Some products needed explicit support to work at all (e.g. Web Workbench), while others just have nice-to-have improvements like putting WPF controls into the toolbox for you.

Happy Coding!
