This could not have come at a better time for us - thank you very much. We've just started on a huge new MOSS project, and here's the kicker, on a 64bit platform. We're not that experience as yet with building solutions, features etc and had just started playing with wspbuilder among other things and then this comes along.

Keep it up, and I'll take a stab at implementing a DDE hook for you so as to automatically load the solution if spawned from Visual Studio.

Scratch the DDE idea. Not supported in Visual Studio. Hmm... must be another way.

Ok, that didn't take too long:

%programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\devenv.com /edit <pathtosolution>

The /edit switch is the trick - it will use an existing instance of VS (e.g. the hosting instance), or if there is no instance, it will launch a new process.

I'll submit a patch shortly when I get it working.

Thanks again guys,
