i've just finished my first AddIn for the WHS 2011 Dashboard and would like to publish it.
The AddIn determins basic Information of the System, the OS, BIOS, Mainboard and all HardDiskDrives including all Volumes.
I've created a Setup-Projekt with VisualStudio 2010 and installed the AddIn on my Server.
The 2 dll's are placed in the correct directory as well as the .addinn file is.
The AddInn appears on the dashboard but isn't listed under the AddIn-Tab.
Could anyone help me with a sample or tell me what additional steps I've to do ?
WHS 2011 add-ins are deployed using a type of CAB file, using the .wssx extension. You can read about how to build a .wssx file here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg513966.aspx. The .wssx file wraps up your MSI file with some metadata to tell WHS 2011 about your Add-In.
If you want more automation, I've created a VS 2010 project template for building .wssx files, and I've posted some information about structuring your *.wssx to support in-place upgrades.
