After install of Beta 2 VB AddIn disappears

P: n/a
I was working on a VB Add-In in VS 2005 Beta 1 and after installing
Beta 2 the Add-In disappeared from the IDE that is invoked to debug the
Add-In. In other words, in Beta 1 when I started debugging the Add-In
an instance of the IDE would open up that would load the Add-In.
However, in Beta 2 the Add-In is not loaded when the instance of the
IDE is invoked.

Any idea how to get the Add-In to load for debugging?

TIA!

Hi Troy,

As you probably know, VS 2005 allows to register add-ins in the IDE through
2 mechanisms: using the a registry entry (the classic way) and using a
..addin file in the proper folder (the new VS2005 way). Depending on your
way, the answer is different. Guessing blindly, I suppose that you are using
the new way (.addin file). Not sure about the Beta1 -> Beta2 transition, but
they broke it in the Beta2->June CTP transition because they are hardcoding
some folders using "MyDocuments" and if your system is non-English, your
add-in is not loaded. Beta2 worked fine for me, though. Anyway, go to the
menu Tools, Options, node Environment, AddIn/Macro security and ensure that
your .addin file is on some of the listed folders.

BTW, there are better newsgroups for add-ins questions such as:

- microsoft.public.vsnet.ide
- microsoft.public.vstudio.extensibility
- the Yahoo forum http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vsnetaddin/
- the Microsoft forum
