Add-ins not found with FindAddins for .net Framework 4.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have the same problem: not finding the Add-Ins from the following line:

    var visualTokens = AddInStore.FindAddIns(typeof(WFLHostView), pipelineRootFolderPath, outputDir);


    1.I'm using also .NET Framework 4.5. 

    2. Also, need to be specified that inside the contract, I'm using method which returns type INativeHandleContract, like so:

    System.AddIn.Contract.INativeHandleContract GetDesigner();

    which leads to having in 

    Can you give some directions in order to solve this (under .net framework 4.5)?

  • Hi Simona,

    Do you check the version of the dll? After checking  AddInStore.FindAddIns Method from  MSDN. It should support .Net4.5 Framework.

    Please try to add the dll from the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.5 and test again.

    Here is my screenshot.
