Error with the JSON Visualizer


I get an error when I use the Debugger Visualizer with JSON Serializer.
The error says "Error resolving type specified in JSON "System.Collections.Generic.List... mscorlib... Path type line 1, position 85.

Do you have an idea for the reason?
Can I download the source code without SVN?

No Idea, so yes source code is your best option, run the unit tests and see what happens.

Just press 'Download' in the source code tab.

Thanks, Downloading worked, but when I try to compile I get the following error. Can you help?

It's really strange. I noticed that the solution seems to be build with VS2013. Any help would be great.

Visualizers are specific to VS versions, so yes it will only compile with VS2013.

You have to change the Microsoft.VisualStudio.DebuggerVisualizers.dll reference for other versions
