How to get Windows Azure Biztalk Services SDK working on Visual Studio 2013 RTM?

When I try to install it ask for Visual Studio 2012. Does it support VS2013 RTM?

I assume you are using the June 2013 build?

As specified here, only VS 2012 is supported:

Sad to hear that. I've just created an user voice feature suggestion:

Let's see if they hear and release the update.

We are actively working on this. As and when the things are ready,  we will make an announcement accordingly.

Thank you !

This is really annoying as I have to install 3 different versions of Visual Studio for working on different scenarios

1. For Biztalk 2010 development, I installed VS2010

2. For Windows Azure Latest, I installed VS2013

3. Now learned that for Windows Azure Biztalk Services SDK, we need to install VS2012.

That is very sad.

I have installed BizTalk 2013 R2, VS 2013. But i am unable to install WABS on my machine. Still we are facing the same issue ?

MABS is only supported on VS 2012.
