This probably should be included by default, right - the template does not include the .dll.config file now.

Created a bug for this:

Visio Humor / Re: no activity in 4 days, is site up?
« Last post by wapperdude on Today at 09:53:06 AM »
Interest lost?  Hard to say.  2020 being such an odd year due to CV19...money is tight, businesses on hold, Visio would be low priority.  M$ has tried to make it more forward-looking, aka the Ribbon and Visio360. But, it comes with hefty price tag, and very little in usable, feature upgrades.  Plus, no incremental updates to resolve bug issues.  Basically, riding the magic carpet until it becomes threadbare and an antiquated, wall hanging.   All of these point to dismal 2020.  It may take awhile before interest re-bounds... unless lower cost alternatives have finally caught on permanently.

That's what happens when somebody's today is my tomorrow!  You've done a great job vacuuming the site.  😌  😬  😂

Welcome to the world of tomorrow!
My wife doesn't think I do enough housework. She may be right, but a vacuum cleaner does not count as a power tool. I'll use the angle grinder on the spammers in the future.

When I check forum's statistics it makes me sad

In 2020 we get about 3.5M page views, it is about half of page views in 2017.
Trend is interest for MS Visio is lost ?

Loads of potential spammers creating accounts. I reckon 10 per day on average.

Programming & Code / Re: need to create folders within VSTO setup program
« Last post by perry59 on November 30, 2020, 12:07:29 PM »
on a side note, had a helluva time trying to get my addin to use the config file (settings) I created for it, specifically it just remembers positions of dialog boxes.
it works just fine when running the addin from the compile directory but the config file would not be copied to the actual install directory via the MSI file so when running the installed adding (not from the compile directory) I would get a bunch of errors. I read in a couple places that .dll's can't use config files, but that cant be true because like I said it worked fine from the compile directory. tried all kinds of stuff. finally I just put this code into my product.wxs file like I was installing another file ...
<Component>
     <File Source="VisioElectrical.dll.config" ></File>
</Component>
and the MSI now copies it to the actual installation directory and the addin finds it just fine.
what a pain!
if a project contains a configuration file the compiler should include it in the installation by default!

had a moment of panic while working on this.
addin would not register after compile. Swapped in my older version and it started registering again then began adding back in the new stuff. continued to register fine even though I ended up with the very same product.wxs file that had previously failed. Strange. While browsing the registry though I found entries for my addin's stencils that do not look right (see attached). has anyone else seen this kind of data in there addins?
