Visio project templates updated (Visio 2016, VS 2015 support)

Visio project templates updated to version 1.0.7:

– added support for Visual Studio 2015
– added support for Visio 2016
– Simplified source code (removed extra files, so that project structure is more like vanilla VS).
Unified project wizard. Now there is one wizard to rule it all. It allows you to add (bside the add-in itself) other Visio files/templates in the wizard itself, add name/description, etc. Addin type selection, Visio files selection, setup – from one wizard.
– License support in installer.
– Support for the built-in VS ribbon designer (optional)
– Support for both x86 and x64 in one installer in one MSI (one DLL compiled to “AnyCPU”)
– Support per user/per machine install in one MSI
– Support for project auto-harvesting. Means, DLL version is auto-harvested, COM registration auto-harvested (for COM addin type).

– Support for old Visio versions (without ribbon) is still there.
– Improved messaging and comments.
– Possibility to compile everything even witout Visio installed (COM addin only)
– Support for installer UI type selection (basic cases)
– Support for installer language
– No more GUIDs in the installer. All is auto-generated on build.
– Addin project is referenced from installer project using “project reference”, so that msbuild variables can be used to refer to paths.
– Fixed issues with VSTO 2013 update 1
