When trying to install an extension for VS2013, the MSI falls over. MSI log file shows that the VS2012 version of VSIXInstaller is being invoked. From what I can see in the latest source on CodePlex, the extension still defaults to looking for the VS2012 version of VSIXInstaller, thus it's not possible to target VS2013 with a VSIX package.
