Willem's... {rue if I mellow}

This is a quick update of the ZipStudio add-in for Visual Studio. This add-in provides a means of zipping up complete or partial Visual Studio solutions and projects and associated files, directly from in Visual Studio itself.

The add-in now provides an updated installer for Visual Studio 2005. Interestingly, the only code that was changed was the Setup Project itself and the registration code/DLL's and the addition of the .AddIn file. (Away go the registry settings for registration as required by VS 2002, 2003). The actual add-in itself works unchanged.

The update is quick, as it is just a port of the original ZipStudio V1.10 code for VS2003 (so it features the exact same bugs as reported for that version). I will provide a complete bug-fix as soon as I can!

The updated add-in can be downloaded here:

When I released this add-in I wrote an accompanying article which can be found here:

I would appreciate all bug-reports or comments.

How do i zip the whole solution instead of individual projects? I was able to do so in the 2003 version.

If you have one project in the solution, it can be a problem because you cannot select the solution node in the Solution Explorer. For more than one project, the solution node is visible and you can then select it and it will include all the files for the solution.
I have not tested it for a web project that runs from a web-folder (and does not have a .sln file).

Removing the webproject made selecting the solutionnode working again. It seems that when there is a webproject between other projects the zipstudiobutton is disabled.

Cool! - thx for that - must be honest - have not checked all the solution/project permutations available in VS2005. Seems like time for a decent update...

I ran the installer and it did not create an item in the Visual Studio 'Tools' menu. I haven't had time to debug it (and may not have time). I'm running VS 2005 Pro. If there is a quick/easy fix, I'd love to know about it. This seems like a cool tool.
