Visual Micro and Visual Studio 2008 C++ Express

Hello,

I found the link to Visual Micro and went through the process of downloading and installing Visual Micro into Visual Studio 2008 C++ Express.

After creating the ...\Addins directory and copying the .Addin file to ...\Addins and restarting VS2008 C++ Express Edition, the Tools\Options\Visual Micro did not appear.

I'm guessing that VS 2008 C++ Express doesn't allow any Addins?

Is there some registry change that will allow Visual Micro to work with VS2008Express? or is the incompatibility deeper than just a registry hack?

Thanks for any suggestions or hints, Rich.

That's true. One of the things you don't get for free.

Far deeper than the registry. Lots of code is left out of the free version. The stuff that loads addins, for instance.

Hello,

thanks, at least I didn’t pay too much for VS Express!

Cheers, Rich.
