This externsion contains a project template to create a Microsoft Visio addin in native C++ and WIX project template to create an install for it. The project builds a COM shared add-in (ATL).
The generated add-in provides a user interface with 2 buttons to start with; the buttons are installed to the Ribbon UI for newer Visio versions, or to a toolbar to the older ones.
The add-in supports custom images for the buttons out of the box.
Note that you need to have WiX Toolset installed in order to be able to use this template.
You can get it from the official WiX toolset website: http://wixtoolset.org
The add-in generated should work for Visio 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013.
Both x32 and x64 Visio versions are supported.
The source code for the extension is hosted at GitHub:
