KBEA-00057 - Visual Studio 2005 behaves as if the Visual Studio Add-in is not installed


The build behaves as if the Visual Studio Add-in is not installed. Builds are not broken up.


The issue is that Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2005 breaks the command-line add-in invocation so the command-line add-in is not invoked. See the links below for the Microsoft hotfixes for this issue.
