Add new project type for an application SDK. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all,

    I am required to distribute an SDK for an application that is pluggable.
    I was wondering if anyone could direct me to the right places in the Visual Studio documentation to do the following:

    1. Create a custom project type for pluggable components. The project needs to have a custom configuration window that allows the developer to enter certain details such as plugin name, publisher, version etc. (This data then needs to be serialized to XML and added as an XML file to the project).

    2. Automatically add reference in the project to the application's SDK API assemblies.

    My apologies if this has been asked many times but I find it very hard to navigate and search MSDN especially when I don't really know what to look for.


    Thanks in advance!
