This Visual Studio extension helps when debugging any VS extension that you are building. It adds a new menu item to the Debug menu in Visual Studio that, when clicked or run by the ALT-F8 shortcut key, cleans the expertimental instance registry hive and the user %appdata% local directory before it starts the debugging process.
This enables you to start with a clean state for your experimental instance when trying to debug your extension.
Added support for Visual Studio 2015
Added two additional menu item to enable/disable VSIP logging. When enabled this, upon clicking on a menu, display a dialog box with the VS menu information in it. Items like menu guid, menu id, group id, etc are displayed.
The source is also available for this extension on github if you would like to recommend additional features or just generally browse/fork the code.
