VSPackages and Managed Package Framework (MPF)
You can reduce development time by creating a VSPackage with the managed package framework (MPF) classes instead of by using COM interop classes.
There are two ways to create a managed VSPackage:
Use the Visual Studio Integration Package Wizard
For more information, see.
Build your VSPackage without the Visual Studio Package Wizard
For example, you can copy a sample VSPackages (BasicPkg, BasicEditor, or single-instance ToolWindow) and change the GUIDs and the names to match your VSPackage. The samples are installed with you install the Visual Studio SDK.
