It should work with all version of Visual Studio. Did you install it and had a problem or are you just asking?

It does not seem to work with all Visual Studio Versions.
The updated installer from 3th February 2013 displays an error message when installing nHydrate on a machine with Visual Studi 2012 Express for Windows Desktop.

The installation log contains following suspicous entries:

According to the log the installer just supports Pro / Premium and Ultimate Versions.

It would be a pity if it is rellay not possible to use nHydrate with Visual Studio Express.

I am sorry but Express does not support tool extensions of any kind.
  • The Express SKUs only support installation of extensions that are classified as Templates (or Template Wizards) and Controls.
  • The Express SKUs do not support tool extensions. Which is anything that doesn't fall into one of the other categories (Template or Control).
  • VSIX files are marked, via the manifest, as to which applications they are compatible and can be installed.
