Unable to install ghostdoc, can you help?
Problem reported by AC - January 10 at 11:22 PM
Resolved
I need to program with Visual Studio 2008 on windows 10 64bit with all versions of the .NET Framework correctly installed (up to 4.6)
I downloaded the Ghostdoc installer v2.1.3 version
https://community.submain.com/files/folders/ghostdoc_2008/default.aspx
the installation seems to end without any problem, but once the visual studio starts, there is no trace of the too into Add-in Manager menu
Does anyone have any suggestions please?
Thank you for attention
P.S.
I still read some old answer at:

Hello,
 
Please download version 4.x at https://submain.com/download/ghostdoc/v4/ - that is the last version with the VS2008 integration.
 
Thanks!

I've just tried installing the tool but something go wrong:
 
 
maybe some registry key must be deleted manually?

This old thread is related to the very old version of GhostDoc, this should be ignored now.

Please try to see if the old version 2.5 that you tried to install is listed under Programs and Features. If so, uninstall it prior to running the v4.x

I used some registry key cleaning software to remove any remains of previous installations.
the result was negative
I manually searched and deleted every key that referred to "ghostdoc" or "submain" from the windows registry
Installed again GhostDoc and now, finally, it works properly
 
Thank you for your help

Last question:
The GhostDoc just installed is the 4.9.15086
 
When VS starts the updater asks if I want to upgrade GhostDoc to 2018.1.18330 Version
Is this version compatible and working with VS2008?

No, the v2018 is not compatible with VS2008. Please turn off new version update notification in GhostDoc Options -> Auto Update
