AnkhSVN and Visual Studio 2007/2008/Orcas
A newer registry file is available to provide AnkhSVN with Visual Studio 2008 and Vista support in one.
If you are using Visual Studio 2007/2008/Orcas/9.0 you will have found that AnkhSVN 1.01 doesn’t appear in the IDE.
Like many Visual Studio add-ins AnkhSVN should work just fine but won’t appear because the installer does not write an entry for it in the 9.0 section of the registry.
In this case the specific branches are:
32-bit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\AddIns\Ankh 64-bit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\AddIns\Ankh
All we need to do is export that section out, change the 8.0 to 9.0 and then run it back into the registry.
This technique should work for any other add-in’s you have that are only appearing in 2005.
