Installation Problem

Jan 26, 2010 at 4:31 PM

Hi, this is my problem:

in VS2005, unless I have installed BuildVersion at least 2 times, when I start a project I don't see the voice in the Tools Menu, but if I see in add-in manager, i find regularly the add-in row.

on the same machine I have VS2008, but in this environnment the add-in works regularly. Can someone explain this 'mysterious' fact?  Thank You.

It's an known issue with Visual Studio. Sometimes VS doesn't re-registers the addin. You can force a register action by doing a MSDEV.EXE /ResetAddin BuildVersionIncrement.Connect from a Visual Studio command prompt.
