Hannes Pavelka It isn't rocket science. Well, unless of course you're NASA

 

If you are having problems to see the WSE 3.0 tool in the IDE you should first follow the instructions from the read me:

The WSE Settings Tool does not appear on the Visual Studio 2005 Solution Explorer content menu. This occurs if you install Visual Studio 2005 and then install WSE 3.0 without first having started Visual Studio 2005. Ensure that you start Visual Studio 2005 before installing WSE 3.0. Alternatively you can use the Visual Studio 2005 Add-in Manager available from the Tools menu item to manually install the WSE 3.0 Settings tool if you do install WSE 3.0 without having started Visual Studio 2005 first.

If you are still unable to see the tool your Visual Studio simply might have trouble locating the installed add-in. This mostly happens if you install on a non English system.

You can check under Tools - Options - Environment - Add-in/Macro Security where Visual Studio is searching for add-ins.

If you installed WSE 3.0 on a german system it usually goes into C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Anwendungsdaten\Microsoft\MSEnvShared and thus cannot be found by default. You have to add that path.

 

As last resort try starting VS 2005 with the /log switch. Thus you might be able to troubleshot the issue with the generated log file.
To use enable logging start VS from start - run with devenv /log
The log file is written out to %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Visual Studio\8.0\ActivityLog.xml
