Visio AddIn with VB Express

I tried to follow the tutorial in the Visio 2003 SDK which implements an
COM-AddIn for Visio 2003 in VB.Net. I used the VB Express (2005) version. I
could make the Template Wizard work and the MS example code compiles without
errors . My problem: I can't find out how to register the AddIn with Visio.
The method described in SDK-Tutorial docs doesn't work. in VB-Express It
seems to be replaced by a thing called "one click deployment" that only
seems to work for standard windows applications. When I try to add the
resulting dll from the Visio AddIn Manager, I get the message that the dll
is no valid office addin. Trying to register it with regasm seems to install
it in the wrong place in the registry. What can I do?

Can this possibly only be done with a commercial Edition of VB 2005?

You are right; you need the commercial ver$ion to do this.
