 Extensibility.ext_ConnectMode connectMode, object addInInst,
 ref System.Array custom)
    _applicationObject = (DTE2)application;
    _addInInstance = (AddIn)addInInst;
    // Pass the applicationObject member variable to the code example.
public void SolutionAddInsExample(DTE2 dte)
    // This add-in counts the add-ins in a solution.
    // Open a solution in Visual Studio before running this
    // example..
        Solution2 soln =(Solution2)_applicationObject.Solution;
        // List the number of Add-ins.
        MessageBox.Show("Number of add-ins in" + soln.FullName 
+ " is: " + "\n" + soln.AddIns.Count);
    catch(SystemException ex)
