I am currently creating an addin, that can be toggled on/off from the extension manager. What I want to do is when ArcMap is being loaded, to check the license level being used (which I have done), what I then would like to happen is that the extension in the Manager is disabled and the text changed to something like "xxx ArcEditor Required".

Is this possible to do? I know I can change the name of the Extension via the config file, but can't seem to find the property to do it outside of it.

Not sure about changing the description in the Extension manager dialogue but you can enable/disable extensions via the State property of the IExtensionConfig interface.
