The XLL+ AppWizard creates a new Developer Studio project, containing all the code required to build and register an Excel add-in XLL library.
XLL+ Function Wizard
The XLL+ Function Wizard is an add-in for Microsoft Developer Studio which lets you create and edit add-in functions. It generates all the code required for registering the function with Excel and for input & output of Excel data structures.
XLL+ ToolWindow
The XLL+ ToolWindow appears within Microsoft Developer Studio. It shows a list of all the XLL+ add-in functions in the active document. You can make changes to your add-in functions directly, using the Visual Studio Properties window, and you can change any or all add-in functions at the same time.
XLL+ Runtime Libraries
The XLL+ Runtime Libraries contain C++ object classes which give you easy & safe access to Excel features from within your add-in functions.

There are also many examples of code, including complete applications and walkthroughs, to help you on your way. Finally, there are tools to help you leverage your code, such as a Help Generator and a COM Wrapper Generator.
