I have compiled the sample plugin and copied it to the Plugins folder? The plugins is seen as active by the Plugin Manager. Yet, I can't find it on any of the menu drop-downs. What am I missing?
Second, I thought there were was a log file that showed the plugin load sequence and any errors. I can't find my notes on it so wondering if someone can point me to it and in which folder it should exist.

Okay, I got it to work. Went back to old days of debugging by using a bunch of MessageBox.Shows. Problem was a Exception that was occurring but ACT did not identify the plugin as being blocked?
Now for a button on the toolbar.

You can always just attach ACT! to the debugger see marks post here, works for all plugins not just custom dashboard components http://community.act.com/sage/blog/article?message.uid=150 much easier than lots of msgboxes.

Thanks for the additional info. I had used the MessageBox to give a way to get ACT to a stage where I could connect to the ACT process via Visual Studio, then I could single step my way through the startup so I could see the problem. I hadn't thought about starting ACT from the Debug commands, so that will help in the future.
