Installer vs. SOS.VSA

Here’s an interesting tidbit that I just learned. I’m not sure why, but the installer (as it is now) will not update the Visual Studio Add-ins if they already exist.

I was certain that I had included them in the newest installer, but installing here at work gave me a copy of the add-ins from 1/15/08 (or so I thought). I deleted the SOS.VSA.dll file, re-ran the installer, chose “Repair”, and the new version was right there.

I will need to investigate this further, but until then, you may need to do something similar if installing newer versions of the SOS.VSA. Sorry for the inconvenience, I will keep you updated.
