I am trying to create a simple add-in for Microsoft Project 2000 through 2003.

I'm using VS 2005.NET. My project is in C#.

I added a simple toolbar and a button, and it builds and registers fine, but when I start Project 2000, I don't see the button.

Any ideas?

Hi Brian.

Could you please download a simple example for MS Project 2000 or higher?

Does it work on your PC?

It worked. I created a new project and left all of the defaults, and my new one works. I must have changed something I shouldn't have.

Thanks!

I figure out why yours worked and mine didn't.

If I create a project using the plugin name I first used, it doesn't work. If I create a project with a new name, it works. I must have created a project and messed it up and deleted the project without unregistering it, and there's probably a registry setting still there that is causing it to not work when I use that name.

Hi Brian.

Yes, it could be a cause of the problem. You can delete old registry entries using the system registry editor.
