Hola,
How does this relate to the extensibility/add-in model provided with apps such as VS.Net?

Andrew: Um, it relates in that it allows you to have the basis for some of the same features (plugins/addins) in your own application. Is that what you meant?

I guess so.
I don't build WinForms apps and had been under the very vague impresion that you could implement the extesibility/Add-Ins in your own apps with limited sleepless nights.

Would like to see code or EAB that would support shadow copying the plugins so that the plugins could be auto updated and auto reloaded.

Very nice, I notice you only make provisions for controls & dialogs what about a library type plugin? for example a plugin to load a dictionary file for spell checking....

This is already possible. You can simply implement an IPlugin Interface and voila. You can do whatever you want. you can create a hidden in memory plugin that reposds to various events using this interface.

Thanks for a great plugin. I replaced your SimplePluginDemo with a 2005 project. But for some reason the Acticvator.CreateInstance() call was failing. Any advice would be great. Thanks
