GitExtensions menu not loading in Visual Studio on VMWare Windows on MacOSX

When using Visual Studio 2012 on Windows with VMWare on MacOSX, if the sharing is on, GitExtensions might fail to show up Git menus in Visual Studio. This happens because ither the location of the GitExtensions add-in DLLs gets copied/moved over or Visual Studio tries to load it from the "shared-documents"/MyDocuments folder.

To fix this, you can first try to copy the Addins folder from Shared-documents\MyDocuments\VS 2012 to C:\Users\{user}\Visual Studio 2012\Addins.

Alternatively, you can also disable sharing of "My Documents" folder through VMWare->Settings->Sharing option.
