CodeRush for Visual Studio 2022 Preview is Now Available

Our most recent CodeRush update (v21.1.6) includes the new CodeRush for VS 2022 extension that supports the Visual Studio 2022 Preview. This extension contains all the currently available CodeRush features and you can download it from the Visual Studio Marketplace (the existing CodeRush extension continues to support Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019).
We are using a separate “CodeRush for VS 2022” listing in the Visual Studio Marketplace to denote compatibility with the preview version of VS 2022. When Microsoft ultimately ships Visual Studio 2022, we intend to integrate our VS 2022 extension back into a single CodeRush listing on the marketplace (so one download will get you access to CodeRush supporting Visual Studio versions 2015 through 2022).
We also marked our new CodeRush for VS 2022 extension as “Preview" to give us time to verify a stable integration with Visual Studio 2022 and to get feedback on any possible issues before we release.

How to Install

To access the CodeRush for VS 2022 extension from the Visual Studio Marketplace:
  1. Start the Visual Studio 2022 Preview.
  2. Open the Extensions | Manage Extensions menu item.


  3. In the Manage Extensions window, select the Online tab, search for “CodeRush”, find the CodeRush for VS 2022 extension, select it, and click Download.



  4. Wait until the downloading process completes.



The installation process is similar for all supported Visual Studio versions. For more information, see this article: Install from Visual Studio Marketplace.
If you already have a CodeRush subscription, you can also download a registered version from the DevExpress Download Manager and install it using the .exe installer.

I have a feature suggestions for CR...


I tend to work on rather large projects and solutions here at Priasoft.

One of the things that happens often for me is classes with a large quantity of private and public fields.

Currently i use the 'Partial Class...' feature of VS to move all my class level vars to a separate file which makes it easy to see them all in one place and without clutter.


it would be an awesome refactor option to 'move field(s) to partial class file'!

Hi Eriq,

Thanks for the great suggestion. We are unlikely to implement this in the short term.

Workaround: You can use Code Cleanup along with Organize Members to quickly get all the fields from a class into a single location. Cut those fields to the clipboard, use CodeRush's Create Partial Class Part refactoring, and then paste the fields into the new partial class.

In a .Net 6 Winform project, the «Remove Unused References option is completely useless...

Hi Francis,


That appears to be Visual Studio's Remove Unused References feature.
