When you mark your Visual Studio 2005 add-in to be safe for command-line builds, the add-in is not loaded when building from the command line.

MS released a hotfix after VS 2005 SP1 to fix this problem:

FIX: An command-line add-in does not load when you start the Visual Studio 2005 IDE

From our attempts to reproduce the issue, it appears this is fixed in Visual Studio 2008 RTM, so I'm going to close it now. If you're experiencing the issue with VS 2008 (final release), please reactive this issue. Thank you.

I'm experiencing the same problem. I want to do a command-line build. I have developed an add-in that is require to build the solution. From the command-line, I initiate the build and receive all sorts of errors which show that my add-in was not loaded. This is a show-stopper for me.
