In the project settings there are three pages that have features that you may be able to use.  The customer build page, the pre-link step and the post-build step.  I'm no sure what exactly you need to do, but there is a good chance that these will provide yoiu the opportunity to specify what you want to do.

You need to write to msvc@microsoft.com and ask about the Package Partner Kit. That provides all the formats, documentation, and information for writing (and testing!) Developer Studio add-ins.

You can also use your Premier Support Account to call and request the kit, but that's usally a little bit more hassle.

The kit is made available only to qualified companies under a non-disclosure agreement.

The Package Partner Program has been renamed to the "Visual Studio Integrators Program".  See Q246970 in the Microsoft KnowledgeBase.  Or, write to vsip@microsoft.com.
