Add-ins Doesn't Show Up In Visual Studio 2010
Make Add-ins show up in Visual Studio 2010.
Have you installed Visual Studio Add-ins recently but they don't show up anywhere? Well, there's a solution!
I recently ran into this problem where the add-in Git Extensions was installed and did work for earlier Visual Studio versions - but Git didn't show up in the toolbar in Visual Studio 2010.
Some Googling and there still wasn't an answer. Until now. It turns out the Visual Studio Add-Ins (Git Extensions in this case) weren't allowed to load.
Here's how to fix it:
- Go to Tools->Options->Environment and choose Add-in/Macros Security
- Make sure Allow Add-in components to load is ticked and press Ok
- Restart Visual Studio and Git should now be visible in the toolbar!
