    How to create an Add-In?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm following along in an online version of an O'Riley book "Programming Mappoint in .NET". The book is referencing Mappoint 2004 so it's a little outdated.

    The book mentions creating an Add-In. The author writes the following to create an Add-In:

    "Create an extensibility project for a shared Add-In using Visual Studio .NET's New Project dialog, as shown in Figure 4-2."

    I'm not able to see what's in Figure 4-2 in this online version and don't know what is the correct type of project to create in VS2010 ultimate.

    What kind of project do I select to do this Add-In in VS2010?

    Does the online book refer to a MapPoint SDK? If so, there is probably an AddIn project template that gets added to Visual Studio when you install the SDK.

    Arjay, how's it going. I found the extenisbility project. In VS2010 the path is File New/Project/Extensibilty/Shared Add-in.
