$dte.GetObject("CustomWebServerProvider") returns null

Hi,

I have VS 2013 Preview installed on my machine and here is the detailed version info:
Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate 2013 Preview
Version 12.0.20623.01 Update
Microsoft .NET Framework
Version 4.5.50743

ASP.NET Web Frameworks and Tools 2012.2 4.1.20530.0
ASP.NET Web Frameworks and Tools 2013 Preview 5.0.10620.0
Web Developer Tools 2.0.40620.0
I tried to leverage the custom server feature of a web project as coded inside the install.ps1 file for OwinHost.exe but when I run the following code through the Package Manager Console, it returns null:
$dte.GetObject("CustomWebServerProvider")
Isn't this feature available for preview? If not, when this will be available?

Thanks!
Coordinator

Preview had an earlier version of the custom server feature that is not compatible with the latest nightly builds. Try the following build for preview interop:
install-package -id OwinHost -version 2.0.0-rc1-20611-393 –source http://myget.org/f/katana
