I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum, if not I'll move it accordingly.

I would like to start developing an add-in to ArcGIS Desktop using my concurrent ArcInfo license, the SDK for .NET, and Visual studio 2008. I am able to create an ArcMap add-in project within VS2008, but when I start to add controls, I receive a message saying "This control requires an ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit license." I don't want to make a standalone application, but only an add-in to ArcMap.

Am I able to use my current ArcInfo license to develop an add-in, or would I need to purchase an Engine Developer Kit license?
