Two years after I reported it, it seems that MS finally understood that this was a bug and I have been notified today that it is no longer closed as “By design” but as “Fixed”:
Standard user unable to load/unload COM-based add-ins registered for all users with the VS 2008 Add-in Manager on Windows Vista
This bug has plagued all of us developing add-ins with COM-registration (rather than .AddIn XML registration) for all users (not for current user) for backwards compatibility with VS.NET 2002 and/or 2003. Too bad that the fix comes so late that I doubt there will be a fix for VS 2008, only for VS 2010…but anyway, it will make VS 2010 a better product.
One thought on “Microsoft fixing bug “Standard user unable to load/unload COM-based add-ins registered for all users with the VS Add-in Manager on Windows Vista””
You the man! Keep at ’em. And keep ’em honest!!!
I’m sure that I’m not the only person who stopped reporting bugs out of frustration caused by lack of timely response.
So my congratulations and hats off to you for your commitment perseverance and success.
