Quote from above blog:

*What version of Visual Studio do I need? Can I use this with an Express

Unfortunately, no. The Visual Studio Express editions do not support
extensibility (addins & packages). This is a limitation of the Express
products and not a limitation we are placing on the sample. You will need
Visual Studio Standard or higher to build and use the sample.
