    Are there any third-party plugin managers for Visual Studio Express 2010?

    Just want to run circles, because VC++ Express doesn't support plugins.
    Any ideas that it can allow third party tool like for the QT.
    I've seen a post on the web that QT is actually installed on VC++ express.
    Just don't know how these people can do it?
    Do you have any good ideas?

    There is no support for add-ins there in VS Express. And this is the exact reason why any third-party software cannot integrate with VS Express. Including third-party add-in managers I guess.

    Add-ins are exceptionally about increasing your productivity, and it seems natural that MS wants you to buy a Pro version for that.

    well... you CAN make addins for VS Express, it's just VS express itself doesn't have any built in support for it. :-p

    But the same kind of "hacking" you can do in any other app such as injecting code, adding menu items, adding buttons and controls on dialogs etc can be done in VC as well. It tends to be a lot of hassle though.
