VS2008 support status
Problems creating project...

I tried to set up a new project in Visual Studio 2008 w/ Add-In-Express .NET 2008. I get to (what I think is) the last step of the questioning (the wizard) and after I select outlook and click Next, Visual Studio craps out on me.

I understand VS2008 support is still 'beta'-ish, and I'm ok with that, and I guess I'll have to install VS2005 on this PC too.

BTW -- On my laptop (where I also have the same tools) I had VS2005 and VS2008 installed, there I was able to create a project in VS2005 and later import it to VS2008 with the project conversion wizard. It seems to be only on my desktop -- which has a clean install of VS2008 only (VS2005 is not on it) -- that this project creation problem seems to be happening. I can probably work-around this by creating the project on the laptop, but thought you should know about it.

I tried moving the project over from the laptop (where it works fine with Add-In-Express) and here's what happens:

1. I can open the Add-in-express-based project, no problem.
2. I can open the AdxOlForm*.cs file(s).
3. I can't open addinmodule.cs in the designer, if I do it crashes. I can "view source" on it though and see the plain text code.

Hope this helps, if it's a problem specific to my system, next thing I'll try is uninstall/reinstall. Only if something changes will I be back here to add more info.

Take care & Happy New Year to all.

Hi Robert.

Please try to remove the AddinExpress.MSO.2005 assembly from the project dependences and add it again. Then open the addinmodule designer.
