Help with Custom Validation Provider & EnterpriseLibrary.ConfigConsoleV6.vsix

Topics: Building and extending application blocks, Validation Application Block

I have written a custom validation provider to use with Config. Console V6 in VS 2012.

However I am not able to find where VSIX package is installed, because, as per documentation, I should copy the DLL to the console's installation directory.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you are using the Config.Console then instead of copying the assembly to the installation directory (as you would for the standalone tool) you can specify the "Enterprise Library v6 binaries paths" solution property. F4 to bring up Properties Window and select the solution in Solution Explorer. Then append the location of your assembly to the list.

So if you have installed the Validation Application Block from NuGet then it would look like this:
Assuming your assembly is located in the C:\MyAssembly directory (relative paths will work as well).

Thanks a lot Randy.
I didn't know that I can add the location of my assembly in the Properties Window separated by a semi-colon.
It solved my issue.
