MZ-Tools Articles Series: HOWTO: Detect Visual Studio requirements for MSI-based extensions setups.

My new article in the MZ-Tools Articles Series is about Visual Studio extension setups (a digression from the "theming extensions" subject of my last articles). I learn something new very often from questions in the MSDN Visual Studio Extensibility (VSX) Forum, when I have to investigate something before providing an answer.

A few days ago a question led me to learn something new that I have documented here:

HOWTO: Detect Visual Studio requirements for MSI-based extensions setups.

While writing that article I noticed that I had to update a bit these old ones:

HOWTO: Detect installed Visual Studio editions, packages or service packs

HOWTO: Detect if Visual Studio .NET is installed in a Visual Studio Setup package for an add-in
