Hi,

Currently we are developing Add-in Express .NET 2.1 that will work with Visual Studio .NET and Visual Studio Macros. I think it will have been published by the end of this week.

sorry, had some huge typos in my message...

well, i'm using visual studio c# standard, not the full version of visual studio wich includes c++ vb.net an j#

so can i use your product?

we are planing to buy a developer license of your product

can you explain the difference between minor and major update?
is 2.1 a minor update to 2.0?

Hi,

Sergey seems to have misunderstood you. We haven't tested ADX.NET on VS.NET Standard as we have only Professional. Unfortunately, I haven't found any information about VS Standard on microsoft.com.

But I don't see any pitfalls to make it work. In any case I sould inform you that we are publishing a trial version of ADX.NET this week. I will let you know about it and you will be able to test it on your VS.

Ohh... I have forgotten about your another question.

> major update? is 2.1 a minor update to 2.0?

All 2.x versions are minor. And I don't see anything to prevent us from developing version 3 (major). Here, in v. 2, there is a lot of to be done :-)

i found a rc2 on the net wich i use for testing now

its working fine, as far as i can see

however there where some trouble to get it running

i had to copy the vsz file to another location (<visual studio path>\VC#\CSharpProjects) to see it inside the new project dialog

the setup project is also broken... there was an issue with the required AddInExpress.MSO.dll but i got it to work (included it myself and set the custombuildaction)

All 2.x versions are minor. And I don't see anything to prevent us from developing version 3 (major). Here, in v. 2, there is a lot of to be done :-)

i asked because we will purchase an developer license of your product but this includes only minor updates

i hope you will stay at version 2.x for some time ;)

Oh... Thank you for this information. We do try to find VS Standard, will test ADX.NET on it and will support it completely in the next build. I think we will publish it in two-three weeks.

In the current version there are many things to be added:
- Visual Studio .NET COM add-ins
- RTD servers for Excel
- Automation add-ins for Excel
- And finaly, Smart Tags.
I think we'll start thinking about the next major version in a year. :-)

i need some help so set up the "new project wizard" for visual c# .net 2003

it is not the full visual studio, just c#

i've installed addIn Express with no problems, so far so good

when i make a new project, the addin express project is not shown, because in the standard edition there is no extensibility category

i have copied the ADXCOMAdd-in.vsz from
<visual studio directory>\Common7\IDE\Extensibility Projects
to
<visual studio directory>\VC#\CSharpProjects

now it is show in the new project dialog in the category visual c# projects

the wizard is working now... but there is no icon nor description... do i have to edit the vsdir file in some way?
the other project wizards have an entry there
for example
the file CSharp.vsdir contains a line
CSharpConsole.vsz|{FAE04EC1-301F-11d3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}|#2320|70|#2321|{FAE04EC1-301F-11d3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}|4548| |ConsoleApplication

is there something equal i have to do for your vsz file?
i'm sure the setup failed here because the vsdir file it was looking for doesn't exists on my machine
Best regards,

Sven Heitmann

Hi Sven,

Could you look up in your system register whether there is the following key there?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<visual studio version>\Projects\{Guid for deployment projects}
If there is what value does ProjectTemplatesDir have?
