I've been running into problems using XPMenus/XPToolbars in a VS.NET addin project. Here's an overview of the problems, I can give more details if necessary:
.NET UserControl exposed as a VS.NET ToolWindow:
- XPToolbar hot tracking/feedback not working
- Context menu not working, exception thrown: object reference not set to an instance of an object
- In a modal dialog, context menu doesn't disappear if I click outside the menu
I'm guessing this kind of thing has never been done before...
I'm attaching a VS.NET sample that shows how to do reproduce these problems (a modified version of the DocExplorer sample).

Thanks for the sample. We have now fixed the issues related to hosting in VS.Net with these controls. They should work fine now. Please look for the fixes in our next revision, due in a couple of days.

Thank you very much! I'm looking forward to it!

I've tested the attached VS.NET Addin with the new release (1.5) and 2/3 bugs were fixed. This bug still occurs:
- XPToolbar hot tracking/feedback/tooltips not working
I haven't tried XPToolbar on a standard MFC unmanaged code application, only on an Addin in VS.NET (conflict with the office toolbar implementation perhaps?).

Yes, we discovered that bug after the release :(
We now have a fix for it. It should be in our next patch, before the end of this month. Sorry for the inconvenience.
