instead of that approach (probably the easiest way to use profile_templates2 is
through a CMake project) you might want to try the Templight route. A couple of
years back the Hungarian team behind it tried to do the same thing as you (a
"meta program debugger and profiler" Visual Studio add-in, only it was written
in C++ rather than in C#). The source for an alpha-ish version was also
available somewhere on the web but I can't find it anywhere now, only the
following info:

I might still have their source somewhere on disk so I could upload it somewhere
if you want (if there are no licencing issues of course)...
