Component:  postgis  |     Version:  trunk

 This works with the 1.4 install, but not the 1.5 install.  I suspect its
 the removal of that commandline dialog or perhaps the trapping of the
 connection parameters.

 In 1.4 -- I can add this line to my plugins.ini in PgAdminIII


 Title=PostGIS SHP2PGSQL-GUI Console
 Command="$$PGBINDIR\postgisgui\shp2pgsql-gui.exe" --host "$$HOSTNAME"
 --port $$PORT --username "$$USERNAME" "$$DATABASE"
 Description=Open a PostGIS ESRI Shapefile loader console to the current

 But it doesn't pick up the db name, password and all that other cool

 For 1.5 -- nothing happens when I click the plugin item from PgAdminIII. I
 get absolutely nothing -- no error or nothing

 (note I have all the dependencies thrown into one folder so it doesn't get
 mixed up with other dlls and I can manually launch it works fine and I see
 Mark's shiny progress bar).
