Hi Winfried Andreas,
Thank you for using Syncfusion products.
We would like to inform you that we will provide the Visual Studio 2013 Support to both Essential Studio and help documentation files in our next volume release(Vol 4, 2013) which is scheduled in the month of December 2013.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

is there any manual Workaround to achieve integration into VS 2013 even with Volume 3? Time until December is relatively long and i am otherwise trying to adopt the new vs version as early as possible, indeed have already installed vs 2013 ultimate on one system being really happy with the experience.
This due to the many productivity enhancements especially when working integrating with tfs 2013 that the new version brings. I am quite sure that i for myself wouldn't be the only one being happy not be forced to wait until later this year.
Thanks in advance,

Hello one more,
it would be sufficient for me to get some kind of hint how to manually enable the windows forms and wpf controls in the vs 2013 tool box to make this usable, if there is such a "trick" for vol 3. I am also aware of the fact tthat such a hack woul be unsupported, but could live with that for the remaining weeks.
No need integration of the helb files in Help Viewer 2.1 if this would be problematic. I can live with online help or other workarounds regarding help until vol 4.

i've just tried to manually create custom toolbox tabs for Forms and WPF projects in vs 2013, adding syncfusions vol 3. controls from the GAC. This seems to work fine, so from my point of view this is sufficient for me to work with until vol 4 gets released in december. Nevertheless, if syncfusion accidently would decide to publish some interim hack - maybe an updated toolbox installer ;-) - i would not mind either, cause the more controls to add the more tedious that approach gets.
greetings and thanks, W. Andreas
