Hi,

I have created a VS 2005 addin,which adds a button to Toolbar and a submenu under "Tools" Option.After multiple registeration and unregisteration of Addin,if the addin is registered it is not visible under Tools option and also on Toolbar.

When i check the addin-manager ,Addin is present with all the option checked.

Can any one help

Sumeet

Thanks Carlos...

I observed that ,when i register the addin thru .rgs file under

HKCU->SOFTWARE'->'Microsoft'->'VisualStudio'->'8.0'->'AddIns' that is under HKEY_CURRENT_USER(for specific user) I do not face any problem .

But when I register the addin under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE(For all users) that is

HKLM->SOFTWARE'->'Microsoft'->'VisualStudio'->'8.0'->'AddIns' .i encounter the issue.

Steps followed:

  1. Register the addin
  2. Open devenv ,Addin is observed under Tools menubar.
  3. Unregister the addin
  4. Addin is removed from devenv
  5. But when I register the addin again,it does appear in Addin Manager under Tools option but it is not visible in Tools option.
