  • If you are trying to add the activity to your custom designer, then it will depend on your implementation of the toolbox service.  If you got that from somewhere else, you'll want to examine it and find out how to add activities (likely a text file somewhere that drives the activities in the box).  If you are using Visual Studio, then you can add the activity to the toolbox as part of the installer you use to get the activity on the box in the first place.  This posting [1] has links to articles that show you how to do this generally for VS components, and this applies to activities as well.
