Adding a module to the VS toolbox


#1

So, the IL-G-WF121 Wifi module SDK is complete. I’ve got an installer that installs the assemblies, help file, etc. But now I want to get the module added to the VS toolbox during installation. Can someone point me to the instructions on how to accomplish this?

DOH! :-[

Actually the crucial information that I needed was the registry keys, which are not documented in the help file. So, for future reference, here are the registry keys necessary:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft.NETGadgeteer\v2\HardwareDefinitionFolders{module class} Value = {path to GadgeteerHadrware.xml}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft.NETMicroFramework\v4.2\AssemblyFoldersEx{module class} Value = {path to 4.2 binaries}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft.NETMicroFramework\v4.3\AssemblyFoldersEx{module class} Value = {path to 4.3 binaries}
