When you go to the Tools, Options window, Environment, Add-In/Macros Security, the folder %ALLUSERSDOCUMENTS%\Microsoft\MSEnvShared\AddIns is listed. This folder was introduced by VS 2008 (it was not listed in VS 2005). However, VS 2008 doesn't actually searches that folder for .AddIn files.

NOTE: This bug also applies to VS 2010 Beta 1.
