  • Hi,

    Using some videos we have installed sdk add in and we have selected a "visual Studio Shell Isolated " template from the extensibility features in the new project section .Then we have created a package and created a set up for it. When we run the package we are able to change the IDE of the visual studio but when the set up is installed successfully and it is registered successfully in the system registry under the packages ,we are not able to see those changes in the actual vs IDE after completion of the set up.

    So can you please suggest me if at all my approach is correct or not if its correct please suggest me how do i need to proceed further with this issue or do i need to proceed in another way so that i can achieve the required task. Please let me know .

  • Hello, Sparsh

    You don’t need a isolated shell, the isolated shell is used to developed a new IDE and you make your integrate your own package into it(the sql server 2005 enterprise is based on isolated shell).

    I have download this application, and I found it is actually an add-in, not a integrated package. And as far as I know maybe he use a technical called subclass (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms997565.aspx), this technical was beyond the scope of visual studio extensibility. So it is not supported here.

    Really a pity.

    Thanks
