Exception at loading time of Allure


After installing Allure, when I started Visual Studio 2008, I am getting the following error message:
The Add-in 'Allure' failed to load or caused an exception.
Would you like to remove this Add-in?
If you choose yes, the file it was loaded from, '<PATH OF THE .ADDIN FILE>', will be renamed.
Error Message: <Unknown Error>
Error number: 80131604
Please look into this issue.

Thank you for your comment.
Go to '(My Documents)\Visual Studio 2008\Addins\' folder, and zip the following files.
  • Allure.AddIn
  • Allure.dll
  • Allure.xml
  • OpenAll.dll
    Then please upload it here. I'll check those files.
By the way, you can also debug it by yourself. This is how.
  1. Download source files from codeplex here.
  2. To disable allure add-in, you have to rename the file 'Allure.AddIn' to something like 'Allure.AddIn_'.
  3. After renaming it, start VS2008 with Allure.sln file.
  4. Rebuild with DEBUG configuration.
  5. Go to '(Allure folder)\OpenAll\bin\Debug'.
  6. Copy 'Allure.dll' and 'OpenAll.dll' files to '(My Documents)\Visual Studio 2008\Addins\'.
  7. Set 'OpenAll' project as StartUp Project.
  8. Open project properies of OpenAll.
  9. In Debug tab, set 'Start Action' to 'Start external program' with VS executable file. (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe)
  10. Set 'Working directory' to VS executable file folder. (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE)
  11. Start debugging.
