Trying the Latest Version of TypeScript for Visual Studio

There is a blog post on the topic by the TypeScript team over at : http://blogs.msdn.com/b/typescript/archive/2013/01/29/trying-the-latest-typescript-build.aspx

However that was for TypeScript 0.8 and the path is different for TypeScript 0.9.

For Visual Studio Extension

To try out the latest built version of TypeScript, just copy the typescriptServices.js file from  the bin folder of the file you checkout from release-0.9.0 branch at  https://git01.codeplex.com/typescript over to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Microsoft\TypeScript

Overwriting what was already there.


For the Compiler

Additionally you might want to replace the tsc.js and typescript.js files in the following location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\TypeScript

Again using the files in the bin folder of the repository.
