VSPackage: Obtain a PLK for a 2005/2008 VSPackage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our extension still needs to support VS 2005 and 2008, but I cannot generate a VSPackage PLK anymore - the system seems to the broken. MSDN searches lead to this page: How to: Obtain a PLK for a VSPackage. Step 1 points to the new VS Extesibility website, but I cannot follow Step 2 because there is no Home tab and there is no "Generate Load Key" menu. Since it is not possible to obtain the PLKs, does it mean that VS 2005 and 2008 are no longer supported and creation of new VSPackages is not possible?

  • - Enroll the VSIP Program (https://vsipprogram.com). The Basic Level is free. It takes a couple of days to get approval from Microsoft.

    - Click the "Support" link at the bottom of the main page to go to the FAQ section.

    - There is a "How do I get a PLK/SLK for Visual Studio?" FAQ entry that points you to the PLK/SLK generator tool.
