Having followed the tutorial for deploying custom commands etc at the following link:

How to deploy a custom component using a setup project

It's a little different to how things were at version 9. Well I've tried many things and I guess I am missing something stupid - but I cannot seem to get the custom command to show up in the Customise dialog. I look in the Categories.exe app - and there is nothing under MxCommands - so I definately know that it has not installed propely. Jeez I hate these installers - they are so fiddly to setup properly!!!! I have a suspicious feeling that the custom installer class is not being fired properly to trigger the regasm utility but I can't be sure because I haven't been able to properly debug the installation process.

Are there any glaring omissions or gotchas I should be aware of?

    Are you using the default location [ProgramFilesFolder][ProductName]\ or something else? Mar 22, 2012 at 20:08
  • Yes - the walkthrough doesn't reflect the default location - as it is missing the {Manufacturer] placeholder. Subtle but vital. Cheers.
