Sql – Creating SQL Server 2008 Add-Ons: current equivalent of sqlwb.exe


I'm trying to create a simple Add-On for SQL Server 2008; it is simply going to pass a parameter from SQL 2008 to a console application.

Although Add-Ons are not specifically supported, according to these articles (1, 2), it is possible in 2005 and I'm assuming also in 2008. However, I've fallen almost at the first hurdle; I can't seem to find SQLWB.EXE (SQL WorkBench) in the expected place. I'm assuming that this file has been replaced in 2008, but I can't seem to pin down the equivalent version.

Has anyone any experience in general in developing 2008 Add-ons? Any good resources?

And can anyone indicate the 2008 replacement for SQLWB.EXE?
