Does anyone know if VSIP addins can be integrated into Sql Server Management Studio There is a "Packages" key under the main SSMS registry key, and if you register your package there, SSMS appears to read those keys (using regmon to see this).

If yes, then how do I request a Package Load Key for SSMS The PLK request page only has Visual Studio in the dropdown for which IDE to support.

Any help is appreciated...

I don’t think so. Former VSIP or new VS 2005 SDK is intended to extend Visual Studio, not other "Studios"... Another thing is that all studios coming from Microsoft may use the "package" concept to be modular and, in some cases, extensible.

A better place to ask is on the SQL Server forums, the general forum is probably the best place to start.

Phil, I appreciate the suggestion. Do you really think that the SQL forum will have a better answer about the VSIP extensibility interface than the Extensibility forum I'll give it a go there, but I figured if anyone knew, it would be people on this forum. Thanks again...

Hi Steve,

I also think so, because the SQL Server Management Studio and VSIP/VS SDK are unrelated. I am sure that internally the SQL Server Management Studio uses IDE technology borrowed from VS (not only the toolbars, which in turn are borrowed from Office) but all the people here are related to extensibility of VS. You need to reach the SQL Server team, the people who programmed the SQL Server Management Studio to ask them about extending it, if possible.
