Hello Dmitry,

Yes. It should detect correct Resharper version installed (remember, that
we have to have two plugins for FW1/VS2003 and FW2/VS2005), have a help placeholder
and integrate it same as Resharper does, put plug-in in correct folder and
so on.

May be I missed something, but you know better.

Hello Ilya,

concerning help placeholder - do you mean it should integrate the plugin's
help into the MSDN
collection?

Hello Dmitry,

Actually, I thought it should integrate help into Resharper's help, wherever
it is placed. Somewhere in the "plugins" category. I don't even know if it
is possible :) But plugins integrate into Resharper so naturally, that I
thought help, if any, should do the same.

Hello Ilya,

this is currently done by a customer installer action located in the VSIntegration
assembly. Probably
it should be move to a better place...

Hello Dmitry,

Check VSIP's RegistrationAttribute, I liked this approach when I used it.
Also, a tool is already there.
