My license did not did work.

It is important that you enter the same email address that you registered with and the license code in full.


Please also note that you need a separate license for each of our products (e.g. the Code Rocket Designer license will not work in Code Rocket for Visual Studio).


If you think that there is a problem with your license, please contact and we will be glad to help.


The flowchart symbols do not contain any text.

Code Rocket has the ability to display the raw code in the flowchart instead of the comment text. If this option is turned on and there is no code associated then you may end up with a blank flowchart. To resolve this, change the Flowchart options to display Pseudocode instead of Code.


Code Rocket doesn't support the Express editions of Visual Studio.

We can't support the Express editions of Visual Studio directly because of limitations imposed by Microsoft. However, some of our customers have used our Code Rocket Designer product because it is a standalone product that doesn't rely on any IDE.


We think Code Rocket Designer is the perfect compliment for the Express editions of Visual Studio or for other IDEs that we don't directly integrate with. If you have any questions about our products, please contact


I use a language that Code Rocket doesn't support.

We are always looking to expand our language support so would love to hear from you if you have a language request. However, our Code Rocket Designer product doesn't require you to purchase any specific language support and can be used as an affordable upfront design tool.


I can't see the Pseudocode Editor and Flowchart Editor menu commands in Visual Studio 2012

This is an issue that we are aware of where some Visual Studio 2012 installations don’t detect Code Rocket after it has been installed. To fix this it is necessary to run “devenv /setup” from a Visual Studio 2012 command prompt with admin privileges. This will cause Visual Studio 2012 to refresh its references to menus etc for plugins such as ours ( After running this, the Code Rocket menus should be there the next time you start Visual Studio.
