Create a project for an add-in in Visual Studio 2019

I read in the documentation:

"Step 3: Create a New Project

- In Visual Studio, click File > New Project..., then go to Other Project Types/Extensibility/Shared Add-in"


https://www.mindmanager.com/en/pages/developers/api/20/#Step3CreateNewProject.html


Questions.

1. Where is the "Project Types/Extensibility/Shared Add-in" in Visual Studio 2019?

2. What are the alternative ways to create an add-in DLL project?


I use

- MM 20;

- VS 2019;

- Win 7x64;

Hello Ivan

The online documentation still refers to old versions of Visual Studio. It was possible to hijack the project wizard to create an add-in project for Microsoft Office, then replace Office application references with MindManager references. As far as I know, this Wizard is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2019.

Until there is a template Add-in project that can be installed in VS2019, you can create and configure a new Add-in project by hand. I have written up the steps in this map. It looks worse than it actually is.

I would welcome feedback and corrections.
