    Hello, I just found this add-in and tried to comment on the post itself, but the comments are closed.  I am not sure if this is because I have the all files option selected in solution explorer, but running the macro you defined for scanning all files does not scan any files.

    If I change the ProcessProjectItemCollection function to:

    For Each pi As ProjectItem In projItemsCollection

               ‘If pi.ProjectItems Is Nothing Then

               If pi.Kind = Constants.vsProjectItemKindPhysicalFile And _            

               (pi.Name.EndsWith("aspx") Or pi.Name.EndsWith("ascx") Or _

               pi.Name.EndsWith("html") Or pi.Name.EndsWith("htm")) Then

                   Dim window As Window = pi.Open(Constants.vsViewKindTextView)

                   window.Visible = True

                   window.Activate()

                   _outputWindow.OutputString(pi.Name + vbCrLf)

                   DTE.ExecuteCommand("HTMLSpellChecker.Connect.HTMLSpellChecker")

                   ‘End If

               Else

                   ProcessProjectItemCollection(pi.ProjectItems)

               End If

           Next

       End Sub

    Commenting out 2 lines to check if is nothing, then it works just fine on the project and scans all the aspx, ascx and html files fine.
