Upgrading Castle Visual Studio Integration to VS2008

Recently, I spent some time getting Castle Visual Studio Integration working on Visual Studio 2008.

James Curran got it working a while back (as mentioned in CONTRIB-57 of the Castle Project’s issue tracker), however this was using the VS2005 compatibility mode. I decided that it would be a better idea to move to the 2008 binaries and conditional compile CVSI, so that I could continue to support both Visual Studio releases without problems. JetBrains does this with ReSharper so I thought it must be a better solution.

After getting it mostly working I decided to consult Google, where these 2 blog posts by James Lau helped get everything work right:

If you are working on Visual Studio packages, James’ blog contains heaps of useful information. Thanks James.
