Why not for Visual Studio Express 2010

Dear Sir

Unfortunately the Indent Guides cannot be installed on Visual Studio Express 2010. To use it under VS2010 Express it would be a nice thing.

Kind Regards

I agree. Unfortunately, one of the ways Microsoft can justify making the Express versions free is by not allowing any extensions. If you're a student or small business there are ways of getting the paid editions for free or very cheap (look up DreamSpark and/or BizSpark), but Express is off-limits. (This rule even applies to extensions like Python Tools for Visual Studio (http://pytools.codeplex.com), which is written by a team at Microsoft, but still isn't allowed to run in the Express editions.)
