How do you install it?

This is exactly what I am looking for.

Sorry for very silly question.

How do you install it?

Thanks a lot

Hi, and sorry for the huge delay. Supposing you already installed the addin by following the instructions in the companion Readme_first text file, I'm here to inform you that starting today a .Vsi automatic installer is available to download.

I ran the vsi file but it did not seem to install properly.  When I open a XAML file and right-click, the context menu does not contain items to add snippets.

Hi Alessandro,

same issue here. Installed with *.vsi in C:\Users\Me\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Addins and files are there (XamlCodeSnippets.dll, XamlCodeSnippets.Addin).
Also added this folder in Tools > Options > Environment >AddIn/Macros Security and flagged 'Allow Addin component to run'.
Restarded VS and 'export or import snippets' options do not show up.

Thanks anyway

You have to enable the XAML Code Snippets Add-in in Tools->Add-in Manager as well.
