Running Tabs Studio as a PowerBuilder .NET 12.0 add-in

Bruce Armstrong wrote detailed exploration how to run most popular Visual Studio add-ins in PowerBuilder .NET 12.0. Here are two steps required to make Tabs Studio run in PowerBuilder:

1. After Tabs Studio installation, add PowerBuilder HostApplication section to the “C:\Users\username\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins\TabsStudio.AddIn” file:

	<HostApplication>
		<Name>PowerBuilder .NET</Name>
		<Version>12.0</Version>
	</HostApplication>

2. Add the “C:\Users\username\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins” path to Add-in File Paths in the PowerBuilder ToolsOptions window:

Path to Visual Studio 2008 addins in PowerBuilder add-in options

Path to Visual Studio 2008 addins in PowerBuilder add-in options


That’s all. After PowerBuilder restart, Tabs Studio will replace default VS 2008 like tabs with multiple rows of customizable tabs:

I will add the PowerBuilder HostApplication section to the next Tabs Studio installer.
