Hello all:

Is using NuGet appropriate to deploy a Visual Studio AddIn? If so, any specifics I should be aware of?

    Hi Alain,

    I have not got any specific documentation about deploying a VS add-in, so I do not have a ready answer to this question.

    Typically deploying an add-in is just a matter of copying the DLL somewhere, then the .addin file, then adding the path to the .addin file to the list of paths where it will search for addins.

    The newer "package" deployment is a bit different. You can probably get the list of steps to do this from Microsoft, then create a NuGet package and an appropriate PowerShell script that does the steps.
