AddOn Studio for World of Warcraft v2 BETA

AddOn Studio v2 Beta is now available!!


For software and hardware requirements, please read the Version2readme

Installation Instructions

  1. You do not need Visual Studio installed to use AddOn Studio. AddOn Studio is a completely standalone IDE
  2. Download and extract the zip file into a directory
  3. Run setup.exe
    1. Note: If you do not have the .NET Framework 3.5 installed, AddOn Studio will download and install it which may take 30+ minutes for download and installation.
    2. You may be prompted to install the C++ redistributable if you have not done so before
    3. You may see a message saying the Visual Studio Isolated Shell has not been installed, if the installer does not install that automatically, navigate to the "vsshell" directory and double click the vs_shell.msi to install the shell. After the Shell is installed, re-run the setup.exe
  4. After installing, if you have never done so, follow the steps in the Version2readme to install the Warcraft AddOn Kit (2.2.1).
