6 days ago according to your site you added functionality but the product won't launch at all. Is this correct??

    Just downloaded and on the first try it is already expired!
    200% sure I never had this installed before.

    Same here.

    I was using v1.03 of the beta and got an expired notice so I downloaded v1.06 and it still won't launch, just tells me it has expired too!

    The first time I ran the v1.06 setup on top of the v1.03 installation. Then I did an uninstall, removed the lingering directory in AppData and a reinstall of v.1.06. I still get the expired message.

    I'm finding HTML5.Assist() very useful indeed. Please fix ASAP!

    Just downloaded v1.07. It installed ok and launches now... but...

    It is very slow to reflect changes in VS2013, as in lots of seconds verging on a minute plus. It also loses its connection with VS2013 and hangs.

    When there is a connection it is listed as 'Unknown' in my Browser Link panel.

    My copy of Visual Studio 2013 Professional is patched up to date and is running on Windows 8 Pro 8.1 which is also patched up to date.

    v1.03 was a far happier experience, for me at least. Same project, same machine. In case it affects any considerations the project is a website based on MVC5 (razor) with a side-order of Bootstrap 3 and jQuery. All the latest bits via NuGet.

    It's late here (1:18am in the UK) and I'm walking away from the keyboard and powering down me and the PC for a few hours. I'll try again tomorrow.
