2. Known Issues

2.1 Installing

2.1.1 Generic

Installation may take a long time, especially when .NET Framework 3.5 is not installed on the target computer. This is normal and please do not interrupt the installer.

2.2 Post Installation

2.2.1 UI.xsd Must Be Manually Extracted

The UI.xsd required for validating the Frame Xml files is not included in the installation. This file is stored inside the data files of World of Warcraft, so it must be manually extracted using the World of Warcraft AddOn Kit provided by Blizzard.

In order to enable the AddOn Studio's full functionality this step should not be skipped.

2.2.2 Enabling IntelliSense Support for Frame XML files

After the UI.xsd has been extracted from the data files, you must copy it into the following folder: %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Xml\Schemas\.

By default %ProgramFiles% points to C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) on 64 bit systems. If you are not sure where is your Program Files folder, type the following command into a Command Prompt Window (Start/All Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt):

echo %ProgramFiles%

If AddOn Studio was running you will have to restart it.

Daniel First I want to thank you for taking the time to work on this project. I was wondering if you had time. To make a few simple videos showing the basics of how to use This software. Maybe intertwine some of the This is what you see when using a addon and this is what makes you see it. This is how you make this button do this. This is how you make it create a drop down when you click this. If you could make like a 5 min recorded video of your screen while you make a simple to use addon. It would get me on a start to creating and testing out ideas. I suggested along time ago that I would create a web page for people who want to share videos explaining their techniques and tip in using your software. I still want to do this. And i think your video would help get it started. I woudl start it. But Im still learning the basics.

Again thanks for the time you have put into this. And I hope Im not asking you to much. If so I understand.
