[IronPython] VS Shell Addin for IronPython Studio

So after discussing this with VSX team I can say that basically this scenario (extending VS Shell isolated application with Addins) should work, but most likely IronPython Studio needs to be a bit tweaked to enable that. Minor changes - like stub application must have version resource and pkgdef file should also define long application name. Once I have a working sample I'll let you know.

Another question is why are you interested in IronPython Studio Isolated mode in the first place? In Integrated mode (when IronPython Studio isn't standalone installation, but part of Visual Studio) extending scenario just works.

Subject: [IronPython] VS Shell Addin for IronPython Studio

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I thought I would pose it here and if need be it can be redirected.

I am trying to build an Addin for IronPython Studio. No matter what I try Iron Python Studio wont see my addin (despite them being turned on).

I have setup a VM where I installed PythonStudio in standalone mode.

I have constructed a folder in C:\Documents and Settings\michael\My Documents\IronPython Studio\Addins for my addins.

I know the xml is being parsed in this directory because if I build invalid xml IronPython Studio throws an error.

I have tried every combination of xml versions that I can think of.  If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them!  I have attached the files below.
