void WinConfigExample1(_DTE dte)
{
// Set references to all necessary objects.
    WindowConfigurations colWinConfig; 
    WindowConfiguration objWinConfig;

    colWinConfig = dte.WindowConfigurations;

    MessageBox.Show("Number of configurations: " + 
      colWinConfig.Count);

    // List all saved named window configurations.
    FillMsg(colWinConfig);
    // Create a new window configuration.
    objWinConfig = colWinConfig.Add("NewLayout");
    FillMsg(colWinConfig);
    // Get rid of the new window configuration.
    objWinConfig.Delete();
    MessageBox.Show("Number of configurations: " + colWinConfig.Count);
    FillMsg(colWinConfig);
}

void FillMsg(WindowConfigurations colWinConfig )
{
        // Lists all currently available named window configurations.
    int lCtr;
    string strMsg = null;

    for (lCtr = 1; lCtr < colWinConfig.Count + 1; lCtr ++)
    {
        strMsg = strMsg + "Configuration name " + lCtr + ": " + 
            colWinConfig.Item(lCtr).Name + "\n";
