MZ-Tools for Visual Studio 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013 is an add-in for the Visual Studio IDE. It is not a standalone program. To launch it, first you need to launch Visual Studio.

The MZ-Tools add-in is loaded automatically when Visual Studio is launched (the setup configures it so).

If you want to unload it temporarily, or to configure it not to load automatically, go to the Tools > Add-In Manager window:

AddInManagerVS

In the Add-In Manager you can:

  • Load and unload MZ-Tools using the checkbox.
     
  • Mark whether MZ-Tools is loaded or not on startup.
     
  • Mark if MZ-Tools is loaded in the IDE when launched from a command-line (for example, building a project from the command-line). Since MZ-Tools doesn't support this scenario, leave the checkbox unchecked.
