/ResetAddin (devenv.exe)

Starts an instance of the Visual Studio IDE without loading the specified Add-in.

Devenv /ResetAddin AddIn


  • AddIn
    Optional. The command name of the Add-in.


By default, the command name of the add-in is equal to <AddInSolutionName>.Connect.<AddInSolutionName>, and appears in Connect.cs as the commandName parameter of the Exec method. You can also verify the command name by starting to type the name of the add-in into the Commands window in Visual Studio, and using Intellisense to fill in the rest.


The following example starts Visual Studio and prevents the MyAddin add-in from running at startup.

Devenv.exe /ResetAddin MyAddin.Connect.MyAddin
