4.6.3 debug plugin activation error

Post by toddsou » Tue Nov 19, 2019 2:51 pm

Hi-

I’m running SPS 4.6.3, performing shell/plugin development with VS 2015.

Upon hitting F5, SPS indicates it failed to load/activate my plugin. Specifically, I get a MessageBox with the Black/Yellow warning icon which states:

Plug-in Activation Error
An error occurred while activating plug-ins. Some plug-ins may not work as expected. See application logs for more information.

The name of my shell package is RibbonShell463 and the name of the shell plugin is RibbonPlugin463.

An excerpt from my Select.log is shown, below.

Thoughts?

Thank you.

So does the plugin work? What are you observing?

Re: 4.6.3 debug plugin activation error

Hey Bob-

Once everything is loaded, I can interact with the plugin just fine. Of course, we're talking about the default, OOTB shell package, so you just get Button1 and Button2 to click. But they respond, and I can hit breakpoints. So to your question, it seems fine.

But my concern is around the popup warning displayed by Select during startup/loading. As you can imagine, the popup warning does not make for a good demo when trying to show off this new 4.6.3 upgrade to an audience.

Not sure what causes it; would like to address it/make it go away.

?

Thanks.

Thanks to Elliott for gathering this info:
The only workaround for this, is to:

1. Stop debugging the Shell project
2. Remove the %LOCALAPPDATA%\SoftProSelect\app-4.6.3\Plug-ins folder (if the debugged plugin is the only plugin installed in the client) or, the sub-folder in this path that corresponds to the side-loaded Shell plugin that was installed in the debugging session.
3. Debug the Shell package project
