SharePoint Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2010


Found a handy new add-in for Visual Studio 2010 on CodePlex here called SharePoint Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2010. It’s a work in progress as I found out not all their templates are 100% but I think there are some useful and timesaving templates/features in there!

Re-deploying InfoPath / Office add-ins


When I tried to install a new version of my InfoPath add-in i got the following error message:


  • “ Unable to install this application because an application with the same identity is already installed. To install this application, either modify the manifest version for this application or uninstall the preexisting application. “


Now I was sure i raised the version of the add-in + my installation msi removes any previous versions before performing a fresh install. (+ I uninstalled the old app first)


I finally stumbled onto this post which had exactly the same error as me and fixed it with the following run command: rundll32 dfshim CleanOnlineAppCache


So I uninstalled my add-in (again), ran the command, re-installed exactly the same .msi and it worked perfectly.
