The latest update of ServiceStackVS seems to introduce a bug in VS 2015.
The option "Add ServiceStack Reference" is no longer appearing in project context menu.
In addition, the ability to update ServiceStack References is broken too.

Where can I download previous version of ServiceStackVS ?

Looks like Visual Studio doesn't let you access previous versions.

We'll look into seeing if we can identify and resolve this issue or see if we can build a previous version, in the meantime you can use Update ServiceStack References using the .NET Core web tool which you can install with:

$ dotnet tool install --global web 

You can then run within Visual Studio by using it as an external tool.

Hi, we've re-built an existing version you can use for VS 2015 instead:

You'll also want to disable auto updates:


We're still looking at diagnosing the issue, but you can use this workaround until you're able to upgrade VS.
