I have created tons of add-ins in the last years using the add-in wizard of Visual Studio, and the other day I wanted to use a project name with a ‘.’ dot character in the name. I noticed this bug that I have reported to Microsoft Connect:
Checkbox to create CommandBar disabled in add-in wizard if name contains “.”
and I have documented in the MZ-Tools Series articles:
BUG: Checkbox to create CommandBar disabled in add-in wizard if name contains ‘.’
The curious part is that it worked in Visual Studio 2005, but was broken in Visual Studio 2008 and the bug persists.
