    Unfortunately, no. It is “hard-coded” in contrast to Microsoft as a requirement that we cannot violate. You may install CodeRush Pro in a Trial mode, which lasts for 30 days, and then use these features in Visual Studio 2010 without any limitations.

    Tried with VS2010. Extremely NOT impressing :)
    I turned off structural highlighting and left with what? Maybe camel-style selection and lines duplication. Didn’t try to find the way I can use those features.

    For a complete introduction to CodeRush Xpress, take a look at this blog entry from Mark Miller. I would also recommend watching the “Introducing CodeRush Xpress” videos for CSharp and/or Visual Basic developers, where you will see most of these features.
