Using in VS2008 C# Express

Postby n8wxs » Sat Dec 08, 2007 5:19 am

I don't have the full Visual Studio product but rather just the express version of C#. I downloaded the Pinvoke Add-in but after installing it, the tool doesn't show up on the menu.

Any suggestions?

Hi Jeff.

Unfortunately Microsoft does not allow add-in's in its express versions of Visual Studio, there is nothing we can do about this (feel free to bug Microsoft if you want them to change this restriction :)).

I am sorry I cannot be more help :(

I have just installed the addin, it appears in my VS2005Pro but it doesn´t in my VS2008TS. What can I do?

Thanks a lot?

The PInvoke add-in can be used in Visual Studio 2008 by changing the config file slightly. The instructionscan be found on our website. We will produce a new installer for the add-in soon.
