Is there a way to get a list of classes, attributes and methods in plain text from a Visual Studio Solution. I've already tried with SandCastle but it is too complex for what I want.

You can't achieve this with Visual Studio. However, you may use external tools, like ctags:

You may browse to find how to use it.

If I'd need this I'd probably invest few hours to write my own utility to parse solution file for classes and class files found in the solution to get the info you want...

I could not download "ctags" something must be wrong with the server. I don't have a few hours to write my own utility but thanks for the advice. Doxygen it's taken too long. I'll let you know the outcome.
