Suggestion - Use project properties to get locations

What I mean is this:

For the current version to work, you need to include the bin directory in a project (all files, bin, right-click, include in project). But that also implies that those files are checked into source safe, making the binaries read only unless you check them out again.

It would be a great idea to read the project properties. The locations for the XML file and the binary are always stored in that file. That way you prevent the files from being added to the source safe (or team system) database.

It also makes the add-in easier to use. When you refresh the list, it will always work. Because you don't need the bin directory.
