Save Settings

How can I save the settings for my solution/projects with this add-in?  I develop on virtual machines that get cleanly rebuilt every night and so I need to know how to reset the tool back to the state it was in prior.

Hi,

If you mean the settings per solution/project; they are stored in the solution/project file. The addin doesn't use any local settings.

The addin itself is installed (via the Visual Studio installer) into "%USERPROFILE%\documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins". The exact location depends on OS platform and the version of Visual Studio.
The folder will contain two files; an Addin file and the plugin assembly itself. You can safely remove these if you want to uninstall the addin (or goto Tools->Addin Manager and uncheck the addin).

Cheers.
