Hey, how do I make an addon for Visual C++ (6.0) For example, I''d like an extra button that opens up a windows explorer folder of my output directory. How would I go about doing this?

Thanks, but I''m having trouble making heads or tails of this stuff. That section you linked to seems to be focused on Visual J++, so I''m not even sure if it''s pertinent. Either way, does anyone know of anymore resources I might look into?

The help in Visual C++ tells you how to make an add-in. To get started, just select File/New... and click DevStudio Add-In Wizard. Enter a name for your project and click ok. Follow the prompts and it will generate a shell for your add-in. Go to Help Index and type "add-in". Select "adding to Developer Studio". All the things you can do are explained in those pages.

On MSDN, look here.

Thanks! Alright I have my debug directory toolbar button.

Problem is, there are 6 listed in the tool bar menu! "Toolbar 1", "Toolbar 2", "Toolbar 3" etc.

What happened is, while testing it, I had to close VC++, delete the DLL, reopen VC++, and rebuild. But i forgot to unload the DLL before closing, so it stayed in it''s memory bank. How can I cut the 6 listings down to the actual 1?

From the Visual C++ Help -

"Tip Always unregister an add-in before changing it. For example, if you want to move an add-in to a new directory on your computer, or if you want to change its programmatic identifier (progID), unregister it beforehand. To unregister an add-in, go to the command line, go to the directory containing the add-in, and then type the command regsvr32 /u myAddIn.dll, where myAddIn is the name of the add-in."

Don''t know if that will solve your problem, though. What "tool bar menu" are you talking about? If you mean "Tools/Customize.../Toolbars", isn''t there a Delete button?
