How do I disable the CodeAnalyst VS 2010 plugin?
I can close its menu and window but how do I remove it from Tools -> Options without uninstalling?
To uninstall the Visual Studio integrated package, you open a command line window, navigate to <the CodeAnalyst installation directory>\bin and use regsvr32 to uninstall the integrated package dll "AMD CA Tool.dll".
For example, on a default 64-bit system, you would execute:
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\CodeAnalyst\bin"
regsvr32 /u "AMD CA Tool.dll"
Why doesn't it show up in Tools -> Add-in Manager?
In general I appreciate the idea of easily being able enable or disable add-ins/plugins/extensions.
The CodeAnalyst integrated package is not an add-in. Microsoft helpfully added several methods of extending Visual Studio. We have not had this request before, but now that you have asked for it, we will probably add it to the "Tools | Extension Manager...".
I hope this helps,
