While trying to upload a tool extension onto the Visual studio Gallery, I get the following error:
"You can only upload template VSIX files for the Visual Studio Express SKUs."
I'm using Visual Studio 2010 Premium Edition. Can you tell me what could be the problem.

You should deselect all the Express versions when exporting any VSIX that is not a template.
I also experienced this issue, I marked the VSIX available only for Ultimate, Premium and Professional, and it worked.

The reason we’re able to offer Express for free and even let developers build commercial applications with Express is because we limit 3rd party extensibility of Express, specifically by removing support macros, add-ins, and VSIP packages.
