Visual Studio Add-Ins not showing in the “Tool” menu
For my developments, I am using VS 2005, VS 2008 and VS 2010 side by side. I have developed couple of Add-ins (XML Add-Ins) for my own use to ease the development, one can be found in this blog.
Last week I installed DB2 connection tool kit( for testing purposes) which installed a VS Add-in (COM Add-in) too. I removed that product from my system, it also removing the Add-ins. My other Add-ins also gone from the “Tool” menu (This happened only to VS 2005 & 2008).
But in Add-In Manger I can see them,
What I did?
I found lots of tips from the Net. All are talking about Registry Entries and devenv command.
- running failed.
value 2 to 1 failed.
worked. This wont delete any Add-ins from the disk. You have to re-load them from the Add-ins Manger.
