Hi everyone,

Has anyone figured out a way to add a Menu to the MAIN (Root) menu toolbar using Addins?
So a menu in between File and EDIT or after HELP.

I know you can modify the Main Toolbar via ESRIRegAsm com object w/ deployed MSI installable.. but what about ADDINS?

I can Create a new Menu ... but then unable to do anything from there...(button wise) in an Extention Addin Setting:
            Dim TopMenuBar As ESRI.ArcGIS.Framework.ICommandBar
            TopMenuBar = GetToolbarByName(My.ArcMap.Application, "esriArcMapUI.MxMenuBar")

            TopMenuBar.CreateMenu("Menu TEST", 1)

The Main Toolbar {56599DD3-E464-11D1-9496-080009EEBECB}

Thanks, in advance.
