Just seconds after making that last post, I received a message saying that the new
set of automation samples are in the process of being propagated to the MSDN servers.
We started working on these a while ago, and it took a while to get them out, but
they have been upgraded for VS 2003 and a number of bug fixes have been made.
The URL for the page is here,
but give it a few hours if something is not available yet since the files are still
making their way around the server farm.
And while I am at it, you may also want to visit the VS Power Toys site at GotDotNet.com.
There are a number of tools located there, some including sources (such as the Add-in
I wrote, OnlineSearch), that you can use as samples.
