I just went to this page: http://www.red-gate.com/products/dotnet-development/reflector/add-ins

I downloaded "Assembly Visualizer" and unzipped the file.

What are the next steps in order to use this add-in within Visual Studio?

Thank you.

It's not meant to be used within VS, rather it is an addin for Red Gate's .Net Reflector. After you install their program copy the file you unzipped to the "Addins" directory, by me it's:
C:\Program Files\Red Gate\.NET Reflector\Desktop 8.2\Addins
It may deffer based on the installation settings you used.

Yes, I followed your advice. I now understand that this add-in is meant to be used within the Desktop version of Red Gate's .NET Reflector -- and not the Visual Studio version.

My question is now: Within the folder, manunt-AssemblyVisualizer-a4be72d\build, how do I install the correct .dll under Tools > Add-Ins... within the Desktop version of .NET Reflector?

My expectations are to see visual diagrams, just like in the screen shots.

Thank you.

Copy the dll to the Addins folder in the installation folder.

Yes, but which one? You are not being specific enough to my direct question.

Please respond only if you are following all of my specific details.

Otherwise, I do appreciate your generalized advice.

Oh, I see, you downloaded the wrong file, you downloaded the source instead of the compiled dll.

Under "Download binaries" in the page you mentioned, you need Reflector "7.x binaries"
snapshot
In that zip there is only one dll.

Thank you, as you are brilliant! I am glad I asked -- and that you figured it out because the world has since moved on from version 7.x...

Nothing like outdated downloads to challenge anyone's sense of version usage in 2014.

Have a great day!
