Hello,
To learn how to use Add-In Express, I've created a custom toolbar and populated it with a couple buttons, a text box and a label. I registered it w/ IE and have been working on the coding for a few days. Now, after unregistering, I want to go back and add/remove controls, but am unable to access the Designer page - the Solution Explorer doesn't give that option when "MyToolbar.vb" is selected.

I don't recall changing program settings, etc; and can't find a relevant forum topic. Any suggestions?

Environment:
WinXP, SP3
IE8
MS Visual Studio 2010
Add-In Express Rel 2010.6.3.376

And please note that I'm also transitioning from VB6 to VB.NET. :-}

Many thanks!
Mark

Hi Mark,

You need to add (re-add) AddinExpress.IE.dll to your project.

Hi Mark,

Can you send me a set of screenshots or a video demonstrating what you do to re-add the reference to the support e-mail address, see {Add-in Express}\readme.txt? Please make sure your e-mail contains a link to this topic.

Hello Andrei,
Sorry for slow reply - work has been busy... I finally figured out how to do this correctly. It was due to my inexperience w/ Visual Studio, not with any Add-In Express component.

Many Thanks!
Mark
