System.AddIn.AddInStore.FindAddIns doesn't find my AddIns

I am trying to explore System.AddIn and the PipelineBuilder but having some trouble. I tried following different instructions but never succeeded.

One of these Instructions can be found here:
Another one (in German):

I did the same what Dariusz did (2nd video) - except of a namspace issue (there are different namespaces for addinview and hostview) which I think shouldn't be the reason... What I get is an application and an addin. When i build the AddInStore the file is generated. I examined the file with a text-editor and it seems to contain Information about my addin, but when I do a AddInStore.FindAddIns(typeof(IHurra), PipelineStoreLocation.ApplicationBase) i get a collection of 0 tokens.

My system runs on Visual Studio 2008 (9.0.30729.1), .NET 3.5 SP1

Thanks for reading so far and has anybody an idea on this?

I solved the problem... The Pipelinebuilder named all assemblies to template.dll. Giving each of them a unique name solved my problem. Maybe this solution helps somebody else :-)
